The Pendulum

Can you hear it?
The slow, rhythmic
Of the Universe,
Measuring deeds
Done and not done,
Counting the souls
Through Time.

Ever lower,
The pendulum swings,
Favored torture
Of the Cosmic Inquisitor,
Steel arc
Of everlasting Life,
Of inevitable Death,
Us to Heaven
Or to Hell.


One Response to “The Pendulum”

  1. Written in the early to mid-1990s. This was another of those poems that came to me in a dream.
