~~~ The Seed Of Thought/Hope ~~~
~ Hope ~
I had a dream ….
A sapphire sky blinked as I stood behind the stars,
Witnessing infinity through the eyes of a child,
Staring, upon the lonely Earth,
As she reflected upon a heavenly prism.
Kaleidoscope array of magnanimous beauty
Breached via the embryo of a new day,
Bore the inpenetrable clarity
Of freshly-cut diamante’.
Babies were flying through the clouds,
Racing the swift, aerial morass, for fun.
Flames of love licked the memories
Of ancient passions;
Evil pages were ripped from history, as their
Inhabitants choked upon eternity;
Their vellum scrolls,
Frittering into amorphous, ashen heaps.
Divorced night wept, as her heavy cloak was torn
Asunder; sent away, never to be seen again,
Ushering in a permanent, invigorating sun,
That bled through the twilight, to burst,
Upon a troubled throng,
Quietening that spectrum of clamour, with
A new warmth; a new invention, suckled by
An infant heart.
Deserts filled an hourglass, then inverted,
For their time had come to pass;
Oceans were poured into thimbles,
To quench tomorrows thirst,
As the sky’s lungs inhaled the future,
Of black, red, white and yellow children,
Angels surrounded the globe,
Touching wing tips,
Commanding the Earth to be filled with love;
Then all was well again, as it was,
Before dreams were born.
The sky’s palette now stroked a new fleck
Inside the children’s eyes,
That shone with new depth, as they
Through the eyes of the one
Who stood behind the stars.
