A Newfound Friend

Youth and wisdom shining bright
have traveled 'cross the waves tonight
and took the time to knock upon my door
and help restore my faith in our humanity

A smile spreads across my face
as his shyness and his grace
both come to me
in a stream of beautiful insanity

that speaks in clarity
of nature's glory
and seeks to tell the story
of history within the making

even while the world is shaking
quivering in fear
at the changes drawing near
for the cosmos moves

and insists on rearranging
the never-ending motion
of a world in transition
yet still I feel the inclination

to dance the night away
in this mysterious interplay
of opposites
