Sailing time’s ocean
A universe listening
Life embraces self
The gods laugh at childlike fools
Dazzled by eternity


No sacred magic
Celebrates the prisoned heart
Or ghost remembered
When morning awakens night
Broken dark devours joy


Dancing with flowers
Day breathes a sky of soft peace
Healing all secrets
And with wild perfumed breezes
Angels melt a marble star



For Colleen’s Tanka Tuesday Challenge
