Your Arrival - Poem by David Taylor

Quixotian tilts
at flailing arms
of turning things
in mental whirls
are fervent hints
to cease to think.
And come to rest
in heart warmed
prehistoric
ground with
ancient stilling
sounds of
monastic chants
from the
distant past.
As the heavens
shine and
In their shining
sing the
hymn of life.
Your life within,
born at
the beginning
when time begins
and nothing ends.
except your
absence.

    Striking imagework, as well as profoundly employed choice of impact diction...You continue to impress, my friend!
