Font Color='#880000'Heaven [english Sonnet] /Font - Poem by David Zvekic

You've seen these skies under a different star;
its rays caress the winds but not the same
as those that strike on me; their journey's far
from yours; their currents found a different stream.
And though for seeming with a stranger hue,
these other spectrums bear another's eye
that seem not quite so clear for me or you,
and in its breeze two seperate bearings lie.
But each imbues the other's compliment;
what seems unraveled, when combined is right;
that Truth could share so near embodiment
and through two stars to both seem thrice as bright.
Through these, I have beheld an angel's view:
  Exploring Heaven, I discovered you.

    A very well crafted, and traditional, piece. I love the sonnet it is a great way to experiment with theme and form. You have taken a traditional role here, but you exhibit a good deal of skill. The turn in the arguement (Golden Bough) is well done and very subtle. (Report) Reply
