The Influence Of God
Hold me in your eyes,
look upon me in tender interlude
embrace me in the center of your dawning light.
Let your essence speak
and whisper sweet nothings
- or - stirring somethings
to my soul
the power and purity of your poetry thrills me!
Awaken my being with a new palette
of mellow musings
and watercolor whimsies.
Plant virgin taste buds to bloom anew
to taste life, as if, for the first time
reborn, with a constant craving of never getting enough.
To make pearls out of grit
is to make sorrow and hardship a thing of beauty.
