Sonnet 18: Musica Universalis

From nothing God’s music resonated
Existence into being and beings
Into existence—oh intonated
Harmony dost beautify His pealings!
The music of the spheres, inaudible
To fallen ears—though its divinity
Moves the spirit to create laudable
Measures of classical humanity.
The music of the worldly propagates
Rhythms, melodies and chord progressions:
Moves the body—carnal initiates—
Deaf to choral hymns choired for the heavens.
Supreme Composer fine-tuned order’s score—
Son to conduct requiem come encore.

Sonnet 15: Job’s Wisdom By Faith

The Fallen Angel doth challenge the Lord
To a duel—proxy faith ‘gainst suffering:
Empowered to break Job’s faith the Dastard
Freely murdered his estate—paltering.
Friends four accuse Job of hypocrisy
In witness of seeming retribution—
Job chides their vainglorious bonhomie:
Perfect and upright prays for preclusion.
His faith perceiveth the Host yet to come,
Stored up on high in God’s gilded monstrance:
Wisdom born of suffering doth become
Faith to withstand evil in good conscience.
Volition of faith tried to the extremes,
Enlightens wisdom ere Honor redeems.
