(Free stock image: A rounded tower is being built higher and higher. Artistic image of the Tower of Babel as referenced in the Bible.)

Of our own making:

The world 

Our Babel

Tower: Exultation of the self 

Tearing down everything else 

Idolatry 

Of striving

Greed 

The dying 

Oh so many towers of Babel scatter 

The earth 

On high hills 

In hard hearts 

Are we done 

Yet

With such monstrosities? 

Monuments 

Modelled 

After our

Shadow selves?

What if 

The world 

Of our own making 

Instead 

Was formed 

Framed

After images 

Of Truth 

Justice 

And Light?

Building

Providing 

Helping 

Giving 

Loving 

Welcoming 

Creating

Imagining 

Doing 

Learning 

Healing 

For all 

Built to the height 

Of love?
