View Full Version : Salient Stars

They were carried to her evanescent shores,
dreams drifted across the brightest horizon,
scarred by the blood rain from the sun,
for a God of wonders who was just an illusion;
each soft tear, an instrument of his revolution.
I will always want to come here,
where the sun never sets on a sky so bright,
where the happy stopwatch people,
sip their tea, smiling by design,
dancing beneath the twilight around,
plasticine scenes of lives profound.
I remember as the moon came down from above.
when all our clocks reversed their motions,
there were no mirrors to see our own reflections;
could this strange phantasm have recognizedthe
secret writings on the walls of paradise?
I am the queen's artisan, a poet in love,
crowned by a jewel so possessive of,
the girl who sees her scars through starlight,
on a path to the beginning of it all,
to a time when men were thought of as fools.
As the wind disperses white flakes of snow,
with a beauty we see haunted by secrets unknown;
what is left in the remains of all this stone and clay--
with the silver sparks in the darkness,
but this test---this cruel madness.
