With hurt and a sharp blade of scorn.
Some relish the premise
That all life is blemished,
Cursing the days they were born.
Of sackcloth and ashes, one vest,
To pockmark the soul,
For a mind that cannot find rest.
A frightened seeker knows more.
This journey, an adventure,
With worry and pleasure,
Can fill, with love, to the core.
Mere love, from the source of all light.
One soothing call,
Voice crooning; expelling all
Darkness, from out of the night.
In churchyard ground,
The body found,
Sacred, thus profaned.
But not intact,
Mercy, all but waned,
But, corpse full-clothed,
No piece disrobed,
Questions need explained.
A love departs,
Vows are unmaintained.
Love has died,
Hope was unsustained.
” Come, live with me and be my love, ” poetic he,
A plea born of sincerity.
Two hearts and souls combined
And time will play with both,
Burning flame to moth.
‘ Till death us part, ‘ he quoth,
And so, the two betroth.
For life and eternity.
Concubined to life,
A temporary wife.
Sometimes harsh and loving,
Sometimes woeful or forgiving.
Human frailty forms
Habits and the norms.
Only love lasts,
When all is past.
Only love casts
Shadows, from granite blast.
Only love is worth the strife.
Donne’s ode to death appeases,
And so, dread, releases.
A different door pleases
All whom life deceases,
Soul with Source, wed.
Antithesis of chaos,
Peace – an easy loss.
Pretend the state
And softly wait,
Subliminal expectation and desire,
While worlds on worlds do spin,
Cloaked in meditation, peaceful soul to win.
Extruding all extraneous, cacophony and din,
Like hammered metal, steel on tin.
Peace; hand stroked, velvet-like, on moss.
Flimsy curtained bright,
Promises of hours ahead, being blessed and filled with light.
Silent occupation, intruding far-off sounds,
Words that flow on paper, as heart so faintly pounds.
Dedicated time, invocation to the host,
Prayerful meditation, no pride or senseless boast.
Solace in the silence; to God, a joyous toast,
Blessed be light, encroaching – filling heart, the most.
Minutes tick so slowly, while dawn ensures no harm.
