Mists of Morning

The mists of morning
The promise and the prayer
with hope a glimpse of paradise
just beyond the next storm

there - over the next peak
that valley with the aspens
towering
round a lake so pristine pure

the silence superimposed
upon the painful parody
that the life of mind becomes

when the storm is passed
will paradise appear…?
