Poeticus Visionae


Warring powers, winter's eve
Mega visions taking leave,
Horror nights, steady hands
Wasteful demons, barren lands,
Cold devotions, mixed emotions
Angel's kisses taking flight
Golden mirrors, eyes behold
Eros tossed Cupid's might-
Arrows flying throughout the night
To reach a single height-

A lake of emeralds
A river's bed,
Diamonds for the weary,
The happy tree, of delicious fruits
Weeds of turmoil of lies and truth.
Warring worlds near and far
Stellar warriors on the wall,
Marching forward, taking fight
To the enemies of paradise-

Blessed nations under God
Thankful for the bearing,
Hapless isles misunderstood
Waiting in the clearing
A morning light belies the lands
Illuminates that place,
Shadows move beside themselves
In hope of salvations grace-

poet Henry David Thoreau

Whate'er we leave to God, God does,
And blesses us;
The work we choose should be our own,
God leaves alone.
