Symphony Number 2 -

Life greeted Death
with an epoch
from the depths of dusk
with a dawn,

the sun rose lucid
with it's soft spotted infant rose
now awake,
hanging heavily harnessed
in the steaming swaying sky,

the sun's aura 
lit the sands of the silent Sahara
liked an aged ocean of butterscotch beauty,
and the starch strung clouds
maneuvored like vanilla lace
avalanching outward
kissing the hips of the woven horizon,

my sight probed to ponder
the powdered blue glow
of the desperate distance,
where the shadows
of the dune's palms
insult the posture
of the ivory sanctuary
that sat balanced for sake of Bethlahem,

I sat megerly meditating,
watching the subtle creases
in the Meditterraniean Sea absorb the sliced brass shingles
that weave the waters wealthy,

as the morning properly transcended Westward
manipulating nature's maturity
by rambling roughly to the seas
for wandering waves of bolted blooms of blue
for the twinkle of a jewel
which sits on a stool as a star
as far as North,
soon the violet velocity of night
approached the set,
electrifying the ending day,
and the Sister of the Sun
landed on the sky's chest
like a sheild on a knight,

as I listened lightly
the Moon politely announced,that evening is back to stack
the black symphony -

J.A.B.

    How I love to read words that push reality to new heights; that set the mind awhirl with stunning imagery and feed emotions in a way that words can only do. I can tell you have a love affair with words Justin and you express that love so beautifully. Elizabeth

    Had to come back to this one. I'm not one for interpreted poems correctly, but what I read is just captivating and awesome. I suppose everyone interprets them differently. Whatever inspired you... truly a fantastic poem. Always, Laura

    Blown away by the imagery and metaphors in this write, Justin! You've given another personality to the moon, now the quiet musician. I can't hear the music, though I do feel it in this piece.:) It feels deep and low, like the drone of some fantastical pipe. Love this, Justin!! Best wishes, Mikki
