That Two Must Share The Sky


Ever bright, illuminous one,
Crafted golden, spun of sun
Attention' s thief, deliberate glare
Prominent perch, fancied fare
Careless scorching, flash of hue
Daily climb to mountain view
Outted, solitary might...
Comes the envious silver light
Strung against the onyx vast
Where poet's, prophets, lines are cast
Dangles deaf, unspoken strength
Stretched across midnight' s length
Second, in the beholder' s eye
Challenged jousting, exercised
One, with promise, one, impassioned
Two, alike, but difference, rationed
First, to burn, the morning haze
In meadows, Eden, lovers graze
Take armfuls, ample, tan and tone
Beyond the break of clouds, alone
With pearlized glint, and opalescence,
She'll peer above the condescendance
Shimmer, soft and full of grace
That two must share the sky
And space....
