back to Eden

back to Eden

i have not always been a Good Father
nor Husband
nor Man
for i am a Poet
and my pain knew more
of my joy
than being a Father, Husband or Man
ever could

it is in the absence
of a thing
it is more cherished

an embrace in absent solitude
is held closer
than that of an everyday occurrence

in the end
what remnant memories
we may gather
of that which no longer appears as ‘is’
is celebrated
with each breath
as a hope offered unto the Celestial Holies
that time is truly cyclical
and will have the mercy
to bring about this love
back again
to in-lighten the eye
of my heart

let us gather the wood
clean the hearth
make a quiet fire
and soon the day’s desire
shall kiss our needful expectations
with a heavenly anointed bliss

and we shall dance
as muses do
inspiring the souls
of poets to come
with such words
that transmute
the burdens of our day

we shall journey from
pain to joy
cowardice to courage
confusion to clarity
convexment to confirmation
that the disdain, despair and anguish
of man
which is required upon the path
shall carry us forth
back to Eden
