In Honor Of You -


Invited into Her circle
of five points,one for each
of the qualities She crystallizes,
truth as fire, earth as nourishment,
body in water, lights in air, and ether as love,
in Her center a sacred thought having origin in primal purpose,

we embraced as immortals do,
mouth to ear and song to song,
mind to memory and wish to wisdom,
connecting with the ease of melody on morning's hope,

frollicing within the gamble of a galaxy grown mad from curiosity,
the path of the Prime Mover performs a pounce along our venerable vertebrae,
She widens a door which illuminates a portico,columns white marble and red veins,
tempered flames in low tremble make vigil to the death bed masks of ancestors,
who made glory a partner against multitudes of dangers,such as living without loyalty,
encouraged by Her gravitas,Her need for a hero,I stared into those vacant eyes
on the pedestals held upright by iron frames,and I heard them chant I must for Her,

made so lovely with a crown of moon glow,
I kissed this Woman's hand,heaven in my sight,
my oath to vindicate Her from profane might,
I awoke facing a mirror,believing in Her dearly,
my headgear fastened and plumed,
feathers of a hawk and eagle divinely sprout atop,
from then I only knew Her words,and a dreamy picture,
however,I trusted Her affection,I could live on Her meaning -

J.A.B.

    I'm reading through your older writes, Justin. Gleaning so much for the lines about you as an author, man, and warrior. Fascinating.

    To be sustained by trust, to be enlivened by the sheer meaning of our Muses. My Love Muse empowers me beyond the five senses. I love her with my purest passion, with my most diligent dream Jade...J.A.B. Your earlier compositions clearly show the evolution of passion's genius Jade.

    Elegant and charming, great scope and seems to have a feeling from knights of the round table or some other ancient piece where chivalry was in vogue. My imagination flares as I read this and it was so satisfying.
