I Ventured Out Beneath The Moon... - Poem by John Lars Zwerenz

I ventured out beneath the moon, full, white and round...

I ventured out beneath the moon, full, white and round.
My boots broke the sheets of snow as I walked with the muse, my guide.
I approached the ocean and its starry, azure tide.
The breeze blew through my mind, yet I heard not a sound.

Then an angel arose, like a Siren on the waves.
Like a beautiful Phoenix, it came to me,
To take my soul beyond the skies, beyond the wild sea,
To eternal vistas, to shimmering, diamond enclaves.

I ascended to a rushing stream,
Beyond the realm of time, beyond a dream.
There I was welcomed by a gilded ball.

My love stood in a vestibule, and I heard the voice of God.
I had passed beyond the prison of earth, and though it might seem odd,
I found myself at home, loved by one and all.
