Words. To my Brother Al Wordlaw (Word55)
Rap words; Hip-hop words.
Words sublime; words of shadows.
Vibrant words; slow words.
Words that need reflection;
Dark words and words of Light.
Words that lift the Spirit! (Pause)
Heavy words and gentle words;
Graffiti words and words on Parchment.
Words of eloquence in lipped ink …,
Indelibly imprinted upon the Soul. (Softly)
See their myriad windows expressed,
Touching the very breath of the ether,
As they add sadness or Delight,
Poignancy or laughter,
To stun or mesmerise us in rapt attention.
Words … of poetry ...unplugged: (softly)
In Valencia, the soft breeze carry happiness,
With an invisible aroma.
There Lovers dance their dance falteringly,
Each step betraying a greater learning of a craft
Which eventually becomes a masterpiece.
Caressed in a fountain of tenderness,
They utter sweet lanterns which glow and sparkle,
Like sips, from an enchanted Chalice.
Here they engage in a magical,
‘Feel awesome but dare not name,’
Realm of speechless Bliss-Delight.
Travelling together, Love never eludes them;
They remain entranced in this joyful symphony.
Arrested in their sweet flame, like moths.
With hearts thrilled and fluttering,
Their silhouettes emanate the sparkle of fireflies,
While being pilgrims on this wonderful road.
In Valencia, within the kernel of this Love,
Flows the Gratitude of the Cosmos,
Throbbing and pulsing like a ray of crimson Light,
Kow-towing in adoration,
While paraphrasing the Psalm of David in their core:
“Yea! We who have walked in the valley
Of the Shadow of Loneliness,
Now find that an ever-increasing flame enfolds us.
Surely this Nectar of Delight will navigate our way,
And we will dwell at the zenith of Your ecstasy,
Here in this Sacrament of The Present Moment.”
