Perceptions - Poem by Cathy Hodgson

Heart seems to ruffle when unrequited
Pine leaf withers like chilled snow
Thunder rips through empty lurid void
Soul tears up when disowned of love.

Serenity lays unshaken on conscious curve
Cosmic blue weaves to form web of eternity
Silence dispels tangled in obscure void
Firmament stars and meteors yet reverberates

Ancients have told hearts mystic story forever
Yet longing thoughts reigned in, still burns
Now the sun stands post and the moon goes on
Branches still reach for the sun in darkest

Clenching tight roots cling to character
For without their soul foliage would perish
Oh how the mist nourishes evolution
Liberation heralds a blossom to bloom
