A Crumbling Foundation

What are we to make of Bill and Melinda Gates' divorce?

A Crumbling Foundation

We thought it was earthquake proof.
But we were wrong.
Although Bill and Melinda's foundation seemed quite strong,
there apparently were cracks of which we were unaware.

Sadly, the marriage of the Gates has come off its hinges.
Divorce has been declared.
The couple has decided the marriage must end.
But why? For what reason?
Where was the fault responsible for this quake?
Incompatibility?

For my friends Barb and Chuck Snyder
incompatibility was considered
grounds for a great marriage
not cause for dissolution
(or disillusionment).

So why can't a couple decide to work at their marriage
instead of deciding it should end?
If Microsoft works, can't most every marriage?

Melinda seemed to be the Yang to Bill's Ying.
She appeared to be his missing link.
She impressed us as being the head's heart.
Wasn't she this hard driver's software?
It's hard to understand
why the Microsoft founder lost her.

I pray that what was sadly lost can be recovered,
that what was inadvertently deleted can be restored
and that what was powered-off can be rebooted.

PO BOOKS BY GREG ASIMAKOUPOULOS
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
