First Look Within

Poem By Vijaiya Ramkissoon

It came down, in the end, to starlight...
Dusted lashes blinking,
Eyes trailing intricate arms of galaxies,
Thinking with breaths of blood,
Eons of blood...
One second...one life.
Wait for me,
I will meet you at the edge of dawn.

It came down, in the end, to starlight...
Raised hands translucent,
Nails embedding tenuous holds
As universes streamed past...
The footprints...
One song...one time.
Talk to me,
I will tell you of the edge of dawn.

It came down, in the end, to starlight...
Etching flame-aura shadows
Around ancestors, scarred and sleek...
For laws bound to the
Beginning...the end.
Walk with me,
We go to the edge of dawn.

And there, sit with our kind, the home
We always sought...
Beyond the speed of sight...
In our hands the while...
There to greet us at the Door
Forever open...starlight.

Eons of blood... One second...one life. Wait for me, I will meet you at the edge of dawn...........................yet a marvel in the histories of poems that sings a cuckoo`s song yet on the edge of the golden dust, i like it too much with a credit of 1o+, thanks for sharing
Your vivace images tumble from the page in explosive bursts of Wagnerian song. The finale is more personal - a reflective resting place from the firmament of beginnings and endings. Wonderful poetry. love, Allie xxxx

The dry spell you have spoken of has been broken as this is a powerful piece of work. Happy you asked me to read it. If your dry spell is indeed over I look forward to more of your amazing poetry. T.M. :)
