Wheat brown hillside spires

the stained glass roof

of your inner blue.

Your onliness a brightness,

the pendant sun leans upon

your shining tunic.

 

Dream on the steep, holy

stone of the queen

over the interior,

your crypt and your spring.

 

 

Walls where I forget myself,

I could be born

with the briar in your palms,

I would be consumed   

by the mountain and mercy,

your silence and diamond.

    Thank you for the kind words, Ben.

Abstract & earthy, lyrically romantic and strangely indecipherable. I like.
