Endless Shift

By Tony DeLorger © 2013


Under endless ebony skies,

diamond studded omniscient eyes,

watching lives by day unfurl,

like flowers blessed by sun revealed.


Colours vast and vibrant sleep,

amid the shadows of darkness reap,

and stillness lulls in dreams uplift,

the glory of this timeless gift.


When stirring lives face that orb,

and feel the warmth of life unfold,

when diamonds fade within the blue,

and shadows pass and clouds ensue.


Then hectic bustle and daylight trials,

the focus of all minds beguiled,

in vast and varied forms, arrays,

life with purpose on earth cascades.


In cycles driven by eternal time,

the black and gold in contrast rhyme,

and within the arms of natures hold,

lives like flowers unfurl, behold.


The joy of life and purpose found,

within this world on hallowed ground,

each moment ours of opportunity,

of discovery, love and understanding see.
