~~~ Eternal Flambeaux ~~~

Updated on December 9, 2013

~ Eternity... ~



Should I swear oaths ‘pon high, by winked far glowing things,

Which bequest bride her love wrapped in gold Saturn’s rings?

Could’st one bear Pluto’s laugh, verily chase souling blues,

To then pour thee a draught of thy sweet Betelgeuse?


Distant Jupiter’s moons, where’st thy heart still be hidden,

In those mysteries, for you, to be summoned, yea bidden;

Precious feelings for thou, like a delicate flower,

Now marooned, erstwhile bathed, via your meteor shower.


Martian, cardinal lips were thy new destination,

As I flew from filial’s pouts of absquatulation;

Your Mercury extended thy temperature high,

When I vowed that I’d love, ‘till the day that we died.


In another new world, o’er the dark side of sky,

Where the Earth is our moon, and the stars, you and I;

I shall wait near the house of His aerial zoo,

By streamed gardens, thou’ll plant there these memories of you.

      Watch out for those dastardly rabbit holes Alice :) You're very kind dear Kim and thanks for casting your plebiscite on this piece. I agree, that the momentum of seasonal excitement can make or break struggling relationships, and indeed, hope that those who need to hear it most are reached on some level to remind how precious they can be; it takes so much hard work to build a good relationship, though can crumble, it seems, when one partner can't be bothered to make the effort anymore. Certainly wish that all my friends.healthy relationships stay together this time of year.

      Thanks for your blessings Kim, to be surely returned upon the swiftest wings of gratitude.

      All the Best,

      R.Q.

      Thank you. It's the first time I've used that one MsDora, and probably won't be using it again in a hurry :) It's a great ideal this ' everlasting love ' between man and woman but wonder how many of us are actually living in it.....will take an educated guess and say ' very few ', but suppose that makes it all the more special when that rarity finally does materialize.

      Sending best wishes to you in Georgia, U.S.A..

      RQ,

      Like Ms. Dora, I had to look up "absquatulation." Maybe I can say Alice

      in such a hurry absquatulated down the rabbit hole. : )

      As always, your words flow in fluidity, your images glow vividly.

      Lovely and voted as such.

      This time of year is stressful for many reasons. Those whose marriages are struggling may have it even harder. May your poetry find its way into the hearts needing it most.

      Many Blessings,

      Kim

      Romeos, I actually looked up "absquatulation" and am waiting for a chance to to use the verb. That aside, thank you for another illustration of everlasting love. It seems so much more precious when you describe it.

      Hi Ann,

      If God is love, which He is, and by His nature is immortal, then to temporarily partake in that surely gives us those self-same feelings which shall be felt throughout all of eternity, though we yet be still mortal ourselves. I've been let down by human love more times than I care to remember, but I still believe in it - it is just it's abuse and complacency by its apprentice practitioners which bring it into disrepute it seems, when the value of the inanimate is placed above the animate.

      Thank you for dropping by for a read and hope you have a marvellous evening.

      Best Wishes,

      R.Q.

      Hi Deergha,

      An interesting commentary.... the world may feel arid, like you say sometimes, but believe that one's thoughts should never be defined by curtailing circumstances, transcending any perceived gaol-like limitation which seeks to rob one of the lifeblood which humanity has fought for, for centuries, through accomplishments of creative writing , literature, revolutions of consciousness, and knowledge of truth.

      ' Freed will ' is freedom indeed to become that which we were born for.

      Thank you for your exciting remarks, and sincerely trust that you are feeling well within yourself; very kind of you to drop by with your blessings which I'd like to send back to you in abundance, and glad that you enjoyed the read.

      With Kind Regards,

      R.Q.

      Dear Faith Reaper,

      Always a pleasure to thank you for such supreme encouragement and expressions of wonderment which are so special, just like the woman behind the keys. Many thanks for your generosity in sharing, and if you should wear those words out by reading them too often, I shall just have to scribe them once more :)

      With Warmest Regards,

      R.Q.

      Just no words really Romeos to express the beauty of this poem. This southern mind must read it slowly but that's just as you would savor such a delicacy. ^

      "In another new world, o’er the dark side of sky,

      Where the Earth is our moon, and the stars, you and I;" This is truly a beautiful poem, Paul.
