An Offering

Misplaced feelings. Blame. Regret.
Loving you cannot forget.
Stubborn pride that finally lets you go.
The nuance of a moment's afterglow.

Memories are rising up.
Love's elixir. Golden cup.
Chalice of an offering
that cannot be denied.

Sacred awe 'neath mind's disguise.
Getting old, not growing wise.
When suddenly your heart redeems
the patterns of your life.

Spinning yet another tale
of destiny upon the trail,
a star-struck symmetry
is opening.

The meaning lies within the unity.
Faith and hope are grasped in the extremes.
The sparrows sing. Your body wakens.
What is yours cannot be taken.

A moment's peace restores the balance.
Nature's love - the lore of hearts' reprieve.
Relieving every feel of misery.
Reaching toward the mystery again.

A magic moment prophesies
eternal movement in the skies
of life and love; a pure white dove
spreads its wings and simply
flies away...
