Beyond the Light Horizon

Touch us with your cosmic fingers
From a place beyond the known universe
Long before the Thinite kings
A strong creative flow
Energy in thought dwells in this land
Pure elevation and knowledge
Seen to mortals as a brilliant sunset
As we stand at the precipice
Will we crystallize

Kiss us with your all encompassed wisdom
So many souls dwell in common union
Mark the trail, with breadcrumbs of starlight
Thoughts from a trillion minds play there
The Bard et al. are known, so many are not
Sweet energy enough to power infinite suns
Far from the outer galactic reaches
Distilled into a single atom, in the light
Of a small child’s eyes

    I really like the last image of the single atom, the light in the small child's eyes. Also, the reference to Hansel and Gretel, 'mark the trail, with breadcrumbs of starlight'. You take on ambitious subjects, Alan. (Report) Reply

O Love! thou makest all things even
In earth or heaven;
Finding thy way through prison-bars
Up to the stars;
