Big Bird in Rome

The cardinals are about to nest
to choose the one they deem the best
to wing his way to Peter's throne
replacing Benedict.

This big bird will assume his perch
as ruler of the Roman church
and soon will fly around the world
as Christ's ambassador.

As leader of His worldwide flock,
this pope will hear his critics talk
of ways the Church has run a-fowl
and how it needs to change.

And while they find it hard to hope,
let's pray that God will guide the pope
as he prepares to stretch his wings
and leave his holy mark.

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.

"Gloria and I have been encouraged by word pictures from Greg's pen that have celebrated both our ministry and God's presence in our world."Bill Gaither, Gospel music composer/performer

"Gifted poet Greg Asimakoupoulos is a dear friend of our family. His poetry blesses, comforts, entertains, and provides inspiration for every season of life."Natalie Grant, singer/songwriter/recording artist
