EXALTATION

mélange of 
dreams and prayers—
disparate yet with intertwine—
assembled in their thunderous ranks
to echo past myriad
gleaming colonnades that
buttress evermore eternity

stolid mind shattered
by coruscant might
whose irreverent yearn
in shards was rent asunder,
bereft of merit but who
then arose amid the glint—
banality dismissed

grieving stream of years
torn from Chronos’
pavilions tattered—
first esteemed, then 
with fairness stemmed
life's passing entourage—
muted those who would upbraid

were you there
you might have seen
time begging after destiny,
which turned aside
what once had been—
transcendent he continued then
past worlds without an end

    past worlds without an end. Oh my how LONG time is -when you just sit and think about it. It boggles the mind. Your vocabulary is exalted, my friend, making your poetry some of the loftiest I have seen here!
