A Hedge Around a Garden_Greg Asimakoupoulos-A call to pray for God's protection over a political convention
are on their way to New York.
But they are not alone.
An old foe follows close behind.
His name is fear.
And as we approach the dreaded third anniversary
of what took place on ground
that history has forever deprived of a number,
it’s time we were clear.
Lest a square garden
become a shapeless plot of terror,
we’d best plant seeds of prayer
in the soil of believing hearts.
Let’s ask the good Lord
to grow a hedge of protection
around delegates and candidates
that would shield them from bad deeds.
The last thing the Big Apple needs
is an evil worm burrowing its way
to the core of our democratic process.
To that end, why not make prayer
the first thing you do today
as you sip your first cup of coffee?

Sunday Rhymes & Reasons
Published June 4, 2009
Sunday Rhymes and Reasons is a compilation of inspirational poetry by America's pastor/poet laureate, Greg Asimakoupoulos. In this, his third volume of poetry, Pastor Greg paints word pictures that portray both the struggle and fulfillment that define a life of faith. His repertoire of rhymes celebrate rite-of-passage occasions like birth, baptism, marriage and death as well as the major holidays of the church and culture. It is a volume that illustrates the poet's love of words and of popular culture. The author dips his brush into a paint box of hubris, humor and honesty.
