mercy

a garland cinquain  

mercy:  
human kindness  
is a mark of valour;  
let its mirror swell your noble  
passion.  

passion  
for the spirit  
dispossessed and lonely  
makes the world a habitable  
shelter.  
 
shelter  
for the homeless,  
battered by his darkness,  
makes your heart an unencumbered  
lighthouse—  
 
lighthouse,  
where the rolling  
waters stark the edges,  
for death ravenously clued-up.  
hapless,  
 
hapless  
are they, naked,  
trolled by wind and weather:  
send your beams of hope as beams of  
mercy!  
 
mercy:  
for the spirit
battered by his darkness,  
for death ravenously clued-up.  
mercy!
