~strove abyss…
   gathering nothing…
   gross shadows… 
   signifying, not a thing…
   Love is the leaven…

~life is gift…
  precept is profit…
  wealthy store…
  Divine infinite, the source…
  immortal is Love!

For and in honor of Nette Onclaud
And contest: Share a Shadorma

    Allegorical Shadorma Debbie. Life is like a three ring circus at times. Allegorical Poetry is not suppose to be written or read like a novel. "I Have poetic license too!" In part a poem's brilliance is in the reader's preponderance. Smile. Agape, Moses

    There is little to be found in the "abyss" but illusions. Only after your open your heart to love can you sense the difference between concept and precept. Excellent poem for Nette's contest, my friend, and I wish you success. And thank you so much for telling me about that dove, John. It's a sign from God, a good omen that things will go well in your future. Love and blessings, Carolyn
