He harks the orologio ticks that count
the cosmic seconds that relentless fade
the iron peal of bells and rhythmic sound
expands the utterance his verses prayed.

A silken antimins - her blooming scent
where consecrated scriptures lay
perceived the liturgy and soul's descent
the antiphon of Corpus' Christi sway.

Denomination of the astral halls
his fervid coursing and her mystic stance
dismissal nightly voice to skyward calls
ascension of his soul's her stare askance.

Devoid 's the night that takes his life and past 
she harks his voice the sovereign woods contrast.

    This poem somehow takes me back to a book i once read called The Thorn Birds..Maybe i am mislead cause im not as smart as you are..infact you will see my poetry is very simple..But is this man described in your poem a man of God ? Intriguing poem..where her scent seems to linger and his burning soul ascends.

    Hello Giorgio, the first 4 lines drew me in. very intense, and of course seeing the city of Corpus Christi, on the 8th line was amazing. I had to read the poem twice. you have a very smooth and deep style. I wish we shared the same ticks on the clock. this moment is special... thank you very much...xox~ Linda
