How full is the earth’s beauty! 
And how I implore the lengthening
Of just a day; that I may bask in 
That days brief eruptive flowering.'
Oh how a blemish, throws my senses reeling,
As I pulsate to the Hidden altercation,
'That holds' the core of my habitations 'way'
Eternity is of how long a span? 
I know not hereof! 'yet in this
World I crave that longer day.'
Long as the scent of roses reaching,
Climbing up to a too brief climax.
In this climactic world of too brief days,
How I long to know of immortal extemporal 
A sign of eternal promise to existence
Once 'pon a swirling..'
Marred in the making, you clay of Creation!
How I compare of the fleeting beauties?
Held it the grasp of a miss-formed pulsating sway
Beauty exists because of imperfect
A balance of imbalance's one may say.'
So, no existence is invalid; ugly is..'
Yet I embrace it for doth not existence validate the unseemly 
And does not indeed beauty court decay!

    In my case the decay is a given, the beauty not. Sincerely, that beast next to the beauty. Always enjoy, Joe. Love, daver

    Good reply, Joe. I don't question your faith in God's perfection, I merely state that your fine lines raise speculation by such as me.. Is God a work in progress? I do not know. Love, old friend, and Happy New Year. daver

    Hello dear poet, and a Happy New year to ya ! And may I say; the beauty that courts decay, first and foremost is, the soul who has held thine hand for the years which lasted; and then the courtship of the Spring, Winter, Summer, and of course all we engorge through these seasons ! And as for Jehovah God and His son Jesus Christ....may there never be decay! What a wonderful write dear poet ! Happy New Year to you and yours ! much love, james

    I see what you are cosidering Daver..' I beleive however the ' Lord is perfect..' yet man is not..' my understanding, being that in original sin man starts the marring; the old testemant and the new both have along with incontestible truths contestible claims..this is where faith is key; i e through testing faith is perfected...' to the plan of God, it would not create the finished person without the doubt element..' its the grit in the oyster that yeilds the 'Pearl' take care Joe..'
