Kiss My Soul With Your Delight. A Sonnet and Dedication to Shauna Bowling (Brave Warrior)
A Golden Boat to A Golden Shore
Row! Row! My Life-boat,
Carry me beyond this sea of storms.
How I yearn for the perennial firmament;
The shooting stars …, to decorate my heart with beauty;
Pour their lustre, into my darkness-mind.
Blow! Blow! O wind of change.
Let your melodious cadences be heard,
In all my crevices of sorrow.
Bringing forward my résume of good deeds,
To kiss my Soul with your fire of Light.
O Beloved, where is that once familiar fragrance,
That lingered in my Spirit? My Heart is desolate;
I yearn only for the quintessentially luminous:
A spectacled pageantry of blazing Suns.
