Upon Night’s Seas
- Upon Night’s Seas -
In the night, in the embrace of shadow,
As the stars rise and the blue of daylight…
Of the skies that adorn hill and meadow,
Fades like a dying flower from all sight…
Mortal eyes see only part of this miracle.
Few there are who may look just beyond,
To see what the night stirs in deep hearts!
The yearnings for embraces and for song,
Which beckon to us from within the dark.
Such stirring, even when the night is still!
The eye within sees more than is evident,
To senses trapped in matrixes of limitation.
Let us dance; become my lovely celebrant,
Whilst I take thee far beyond any initiation!
The music plays, the moon bears witness,
For I am the darkness, I am night’s mistress!
Crickets and night birds call with fervor,
Singing songs of the night, to be savored…
Even whilst some look to the dark in fear,
Trying oft to will prayers to be answered…
Knowing not the divinity that is listening.
Few there are who may know of comfort,
Whilst held by the night with warm arms!
By what means, doth the night transport…
The spirit to ecstasy with its’ mad charms?
Who can say, amidst starlight’s glistening!
The flower of night blooms ever sweetest,
When shadows paint gardens, on the walls.
There, an ivy and a rose may grow prettiest,
Embraced by shadows, within night’s halls!
The music plays, the moon watches above,
For I am the black rose, of passion and love!
Mine eyes, hath seen night’s full visage,
As untainted by the sun’s pale imitation…
Unveiled, like the truth beyond a mirage,
Which may be seen through illumination…
A glory beyond: mundane heavenly ideas.
Love for a beautiful maiden, such desires,
Like fire burn and blaze in evening hours!
I am set alight, unmarred by hottest fires…
For fire and night are facets of my powers.
Sail beside me this eve, upon night’s seas!
I prepare a place upon the evening’s waters,
Where those kindred to myself may be free.
I was the first of night’s chosen daughters…
The light in the shadow, so that all may see!
