Poetry Magnum Opus

the cosmic rose of light


Recommended Posts

In the eyes of a deity light reveals

a burning ark in which an angel 
impersonates the moon inside
the flame of a candle. The cosmic
rose of light was passed on until it
reached the waters of life on a small
planet. The first rays of a new moon are
served by the sun's midwife, night meets
day. Four seasons take off their bandages,
they dance passing each other a delicate 
vase in which figures are painted, invited 
eyes pierce through.  
Sphinx hitchhikes through wombs, connecting
night and day, drinking Heaven from earth-for
those waiting to be born. Running light of
paradise and that of the earth intermingle for
those leaving the womb.

Barry, This is beautiful.   The extraordinary imagery which I expect from you is arranged in such a way that I was carried away into the light.  Awesome.  The lyrical rhythm and flow of the piece was a welcome surprise.  One image fluidly flow into the next painting word pictures that were like a slow moving crystal clear river.  My favorite of all of your poems so far.
