Closing In On Truth

The distillation of a thought,
how like the science of a touch—
to brush aside the pretense,
scope within the lake of memory
and know that still intact
is all the passion there submerged,
genuine, for all the years unknown.

How rare!  That light may penetrate
the depths of false despair,  that history
may reappear and flash its insight
once again upon the yellowed obfuscation
of a consciousness worn clear of hope,
a blindness self-imposed and born
of ennui and pride.

Then from the waves, Excalibur,
and from concentric heritage
a triumph—to the lady evermore,
a mystery surrounding her,
past the eternity of men
who then must yield it back again, 
drawn underneath the surface
of the mind of God.
            ~

    † More Than Mere Truth One Needs To Find The Light Of Substance While Gathering In These Crystal Particles Called Results ? Self Evident Axioms Which Stand Atop The Pinnacle As Time To Proclaim 'Love's' Victory ! Anything Less It Most Surely Should Seem But, An Honoring Void Towards Hollow Their Resounding Bells Mighty In Blank ? Better Said, Wallow Of The Mallow ˜ Smile, Congrats Upon Your Truly Magnificent Feature My Dear Friend, Love, John
