Sorry was excited about stag beetles and posted before reading the entire prompt, so no flying deer yet.
Declare them guilty, O God!
Let their intrigues be their downfall.
Banish them for their many sins,
for they have rebelled against you.
Declare them guilty,
those who take innocent blood.
Those who cowardly send
others to blow themselves up.
Who will serve justice
for their horrible crimes.
O God, Declare them guilty.
Let their intrigues be their downfall,
let their enemies overcome them.
Who O Lord benefits from the cries
of infants lost in senseless carnage?
What mother can be comforted?
What child does not fill with hatred
for the loss of parents?
O God strike fear in the hearts
of our attackers, banish them
for the sins against the innocent.
They are not only rebelling
against democracy and liberty,
but against you as well, O Lord.
Hear our cries for revenge,
give us our satisfaction for justice.
No, Lord restore to us our peace,
do not let our hearts be hardened.
O God let us learn forgiveness.
Paul Signac was born November 11, 1863. He was a french painter who was famous for his pointillism style. He began his artistic career at the age of 23, after being inspired by the work of Monet. He was greatly influenced by Seurat’s work, and he and Seurat became great friends. I love the soft muted colors of his work, it feels like being in a dream.

I dream of you
