yet we shine

yet we shine

the valiant quest of Perseus
has not gone unnoticed
by the Gods

sword drawn in victory
brandishing the head
of Medusa

for his prize
he was given an Galaxy
of wonder
we now call Andromeda
whose beauty they claimed
exceeded that of Nereids
but who stood in judgment

the contemplative aspects of man’s quest
to become inscribed
in the annals of time
as His Story of sorts
contorts our reason
as we resort to such antics
with our frantic
logic loosed movements

the Zeus’ of our world
herald in new edicts
confounding our good intent
but good intent
serves no master
save that of reward

in the end
the Persephone
win always
and the Queens
do relinquish their realms
and perhaps sovereignty
to another Cassiopeia
who waits in the folds
of time yet to arrive
into our Now-ness

and what is the “Myth”
of the 12 Olympians
will there ever be a clarity
that allows us to
see the light of
each Star’s Soul

yet we shine
in a flux
with a crux
to bear new tale

yet we shine
