Another winter Star

***I am reposting this poem as I think it is my finest poetic creation. I feel the imagery of the piece and its 'fabled' characters are cohesive to create a positive environment that reflects the star's light of hope; the 3rd stanza and the poem's final lines provide a natural summation of metaphysical realities that incur from human emotion and suggests that we all come from the same mold and thus we are not the cause of ourselves; 'a theistic natural priori in the belief of God through the poetic endeavour.' I awoke to find the tall splendor of the world, in those cosmic canyons, shearing darkness ---- in the pallet of some ethereal night; ancient with desire..... to Illume the thick shadow of hades itself Not death nor mortal doubt couldst thou flee from me, mighty as Aphrodite ---- Shooting thy silver smile beautiful as heaven's promise! In your shimmering I see hope, for the heart which beholds thy majesty the world could fade, yet you remain..... a friendly face if none should be found, but you..... that thou Creator dost reveal; my soul, ageless as thee (am spun from the same loom)

I agree with TS Poetry, " Wonderful Keith"! None but a true and great poet could have presented this jewel. That "loom" did indeed spin with its golden thread and its shining link to the master poets of old so very well represented! A fav... God bless...
