Holding The World In His Hands by Joanna Maharis


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.
