He digs his hands in earthly realms
scooping out soil built up inside
spiritual bodies deigned to relive
each rhythm of life through the
eyes of thunder, and the soul of lightening.
Man’s flesh burns deep red like a rose in bloom.
His eyes are like crystal goblets adorning ceilings
of elegant dining rooms.
His voice is smooth like trickling waters flowing
From a lazy stream.
For this is the music of the soul boiling over into
nature’s candy I feed from.
His steel hands transform lost souls into visions
of light burning into eternal flame.
Shadows fill in crevices of cracked foundations
emerging from my isolated walls; yet, the bee
always buzzes the loudest when melodies from my
chimes tickle its vessel with loveliness laced around
atmospheric groves sanctioned by heavenly trellises.
Where feverish eyes turn in for the night, sensuous
souls dwelling in the moon river awaken, forever
lost inside their own minds delivering their aching
woes to the wise one whose hands behold them.
