Dreamtime: flowers never bloom

I heard my name from shadows spoke, beyond the place called time where thoughts begin, from deep within where names have never been It's there I found the driftless peace upon the sunlit glen far from the distant cloudless nights where hope has never been I felt the tears of morning dew the Angels left for you I'll shine a light upon your path that sunrise never knew

Ethereal. A fundamental cadence that carries the reader forward smoothly and inevitably. Great use of structure and image!

I hopey you didn't misunderstand my comment. I thought this was an absolutely superb write and that even the harshest critic would find it poetic. I write simple stuff. This is classical poetry at its best. God Bless. Oh! I never noticed the typo if it was there when I read it. Vince
