(((Home ' I Know'))) - Poem by Theodora (Theo) Onken

I reach for the sapphire Heavens
...Filling my hands with the Firmaments Prayer
....On into the Ebon' of Noir'
...Where Broken Hearts, cry in despair

I must call upon My Maker.....
....Through My Ethereal Circumstance
...Floating, i, upon a Silken veil
...Of Salvations Divine Ambience

A Light and Warmth, it fills me
....It has raised me above the Sod
.....Floating e'er upwards in shimmering Ecstacy
...To, at last, Touch The Hand of God.

    Your poem reminds me of faith and loss, one can lose faith but in faith nothing is lost, reminds me of the fragile nature of life and joy, both come quickly yet fade so easily.
    a beautiful sentiment of poetic art, Great work Theo
