Earth Poems: 352 / 500

That Gaze, Once Turned

Rating: 5.0

That gaze, once turned
Smiles upon me forever.
Those eyes, once burned
As the stars never go out.
This earth, one keeps
Sunblest for day, though set
Yet in song; in perfume yet.
This earth, moreover
Clear for night, against Time's will
Still pain-assuaged; tranquil still.

I adored this brevity piece not only because the last verse mentioned one of my favorite words *grins* but because artistry was inked in every line.
