An Ode to Life

Such days as these we meditate
the future course to run
a studded galaxy of time
and happenings to come
unknown as yet to earthbound minds
but surely known to some
for those of courage and fearless spirit
for those who dare to plumb
the hidden depths of scattered seeds
awaiting on the sun.

By Venus or Diana
the germ of life is born
as surely as the darkest night
acknowledges the dawn
In birth erupts a joyous state
of distant horizons untold
with faltering steps unsteady yet
awareness begins to unfold
shadowy eyes moisten a little
like the morning dew
lifting the veil of darkness
as daylight filters through.
