Angelic Callings

Words on a page, sounds, Mother's calling
soft tones rose from leather tomes sweetly,
through rouged lips they tumble with love.
Lullabies call through the coldest of nights
as frost haloes about the curls, open-hearted,
eager, a child of contested love’s joining.

What would this chimera become now joined.
Oh what would be the result of this clarion call?
Angels wonder at the blend of unformed heart,
as words of Our Fathers resound so sweet
for the thrice kissed lips of child and overbearing night.
May all who come from the light delight in love.

May the child addressed bring comfort, bring love, 
grow in service to the higher good and join
the wholesome hearts who warm the darkest night,
for bringing comfort, kindness, and caring is a calling,
which teaches every opened soul of sweetness
and heals the aching angry sores of forlorn hearts.

With words of joy, and a voice full of heart
let her hands touch, and sooth, each pain lovingly,
with the like-minded teachers and nurses sweetening
the balm smoothed upon the brow of man, enjoined
to heed the call, the ancient ever-present call
of majesty in morning and peaceful rest at night. 

Each life presents its morning and ends in eternal night.
Each soul stores fonts of happiness and heartache.
Conception buds and blooms, sending out a clarion call
enjoining all who have the healing gift to garner love.
Gentle ones, who plant the seeds, tend the hearts join…
be the humble gardeners of the meek and sweet.

What task could be richer or path sweeter
than that of those who doctor, and nurse, and warm night?
Tender hearts and helping hands come together, join…
in the higher consciousness of he’s and she’s heartfelt.
Raise the banner; fly the unifying flag of healing love,
make this your onward path the Way, the Red Road your calling.

For what is sweeter day or night for each are joined,
heartily we love and live to heed these fine callings.

    Dear Light and LOVE, Deborah, I read this and ask myself Why have I not read more of this Author. I remember entering a Sestina Contest and the Sponser ask me to delete it to give others that Knew the form a chance. I choose to think YOU were the one. This is excellent and timely done for the Season Happy Holidays to YOU and YOURS LOVE ALWAYS and FOREVER YOUR Eternal Liege...Harry

    WOW! Here is one I'd love to discuss at length, explore my interpretations to your intentions. I hesitate to ask but I see so much Christmas in this... the tome, the bible, the three gifts (which I believe represent what you have said) ... am I being a muffinhead? It is so lovely, it leaves me dizzy, lost in metaphor and image.

    I have really grown quite fond of Sestinas. Especially when, like this one, the story captivates the reader and while the words are all in their correct places and used properly, it's hardly noticable, because the poem outshines the form. Lovely, Deb. Happy Holidays! hugs, Catie :)
