In the white wilderness of sand and stone
the dark river glistens under the faint
gleam of a pale crescent moon.
In the frightening flicker of thick green
a single ray of shining sun stirs the bush
and pierces the gloom.
In the vast wideness of the infinite sea
a lone bird flies from far horizon
signals the sailor of a safe harbor.
In my own endless battle between truth
and illusion, an occasional spark of
insight enlivens me to the gossamer
touch of delicate, delicious angelic kisses.
