Saint Eule (10/30/1955 / Shamokin, Pa)
A Glacier Of Clear Thought
Looked into the alabaster clay,
found nothing of worth there today.
Looked into the field of corn,
found only lives wrecked and torn.
Looked into the darkest sea,
found creatures wandering aimlessly.
Looking into caves of Odin,
found ancient ruins to beholden.
Looked into the cracks of dawn,
found elves and giants had come and gone.
Looked into the jasmine eyes,
found only hearts that were full of lies.
Looked into the mucky mud,
found soldiers crawling in the blood.
Looked into the desert of despair,
found only snakes and lizards living there.
Looked into chamber of horror,
found ghosts and skeletons in graves afar.
To my surprise I closed my eyes,
In a peaceful dream I got.
When looking within the Northern lights,
A Glacier of clear thought.
