A Soul Struck


A Soul Struck


Before your work is begun,

consider growing thoughts,

calm and reasoned,

using uncluttered pages of a text 

written about extraordinarily benevolent characters,  

penned vignettes 

typifying what will later transpire 

for the good of all.


Let satisfied visual senses 

absorb the bright as a prism does,

embracing a boldness of color,

like a fountain of light 

erupting from dull to pure green.


Compose canorous song 

with its best repetitions revealed.


Build your colossus with solid stones.

Restore ancient temples to resplendent glory

that shines forth with radiant energy.


We’ll see, with upturned eyes,

upon so lofty a plane,  

tall edifices with turrets of divine love,

housing the souls of the just,

and those who live under a flag of peace.


Your work ends there.
