each tear
the milk and honey
running gently down my spine
.
each tear
the milk and honey
running gently down my spine
.
to the river
from afar
catching fireflies in a jar
twinkle twinkle little star
i know precisely what you are
i dream concisely
when invited
to delight thee
open palmed
to the river
from afar
politely charmed
.
here thou art fine
thine hallmarked heart
of fine art and divine
i hear the call
of mystifying splendour
in the vine
in sweep so steeped of venture
i feel betterment to cry
each tear
the milk and honey
running gently down my spine
.
running gently down my spine
running gently down my spine
to testify the sweetened nectar of define
(divine)

when invited
to delight thee
open palmed
to the river
from afar
politely charmed
.
it is funny how the river runs
more freely in thy wake
encouraging each feeling
of fragility misplaced
revealing the naïveté one needs to bleed in grace
i dream concisely
when invited to relieve the mighty chains
ordained to bind me to delusion of misfaith
.
in light of thee
they fall away
in light of thee
they fall away
in light of thee
they fall away
fall away
.
the river runs
to call thy name
the tall grass sways
to serenade
the rising tide
of all thine aid
invited to delight thee
open palmed
to the river
from afar
politely charmed
to the river

here
in the profoundest sense
lies every dream
i ever dreamt
each crowning feeling on request
the sweet appeal of longed caress
reveals the heart
then fits a stent
in jewels bedecked
of rules bereft
upon a wing and prayer
it’s blessed
one mirrored pair
of feathered crests
beautiful in life
as death
provable to final breath
even then
its echoes
are forget-me-nots
remembered
never lost
for hand in hand
we fan the living embers
fan the living embers
fan the living embers
.
