Lux Perpetua…

your wireless voice alifting me
to higher, higher silence
makes my spirit feel angelic
light and young…
I long to mail you this, my dear
this softly, softly whispered song…

swans across the morningland
sweet thoughts of heaven’s
holiness, a vastest place
of joy twixt you and me…
see how they’re gliding
on the easy summerbreeze…
oh how I love the lucid space
in which we’re waltzing
with the stars of Aldeb’ran…
somewhere ‘yond
the crystal cosmic seas…

your wireless voice asoothing me
like music from another golden age…
your ways so true, your words so warm
so humble, yet so very sage…

and do you hear me, honey
writing on our brightest silverpage…?
I am the Zephyr kissing roses
on your tender fingertips
and artless dewdrops
on your luscious smiling lips…
swans across the eveningland
sweet thoughts of Love & Karma
Lux, Lux in tenebris, Lux Perpetua...

Poem of the Day

poet James Whitcomb Riley

There! little girl; don't cry!
They have broken your doll, I know;
And your tea-set blue,
And your play-house, too,
Are things of the long ago;
