Cached Dreams

Eden pedestalled
On burnished clouds of dawn
Is dew melted famished leaves.
Diamond visions
In our bright dreaming glory,
Bolt castle doors flaming grief.

That heaven is gone
We were too far gods to know;
We wear pearls now, frozen tears
Of soft sufferings.
It's all we know of love's grace:
Time's mortal beauty shines still.  

For all else unknown
Consumes this as paradise
Total of the castle's store
Cached in heaven
Where each delight unveils fresh
Figures of old glory bright.

No memory here
Just dreams, the wafers so sweet
That melt on tongue and in light
Sense regurgitates
What had never been, communes
With divine grace, so we dream.

Each dream a spark, glows
For faith, and prods the heart clean
As the fired wine; we sip grace
In treasures of smile:
Joy's cached beauty spilling
From the heart: a frugal rain.

I want to dance there
And sing in it like children
To be swallows in the rain
Wings flashing light shards
The fresh eucharist
Of joy. It's eden's bright kiss
In every art that we miss.

    This piece is art. It sis so eloquent to be so profoundly putrid in many ways, you have mastered your talent here I feel. Never give up your pen, your a life long writer, its clear as the bells that ring, come Sunday :) Cindy
