Similitude

[after Pavlova]

swan on the similar waters
I have seen you shine
when snows vault through

the heavens
as if they were made of stars
drifting, drifting

to where you are;
to where you are drifting
and where you remain

in my heart past time's measured climb
as though in crystal
you were divined within my name

and to my soul's own rectitude had claim.
also, also o swan so
similar how she was always

drifting away and towards you
simultaneously all all her life;
this unquenchable refrain...

Love's God or God's Love, It makes no difference with a dove, For its life, was no better, In the hands of an Hunter. it is love and ppure love that matters... beautiful description and i love it. red mine mary to marry and butterflies around
a universal principle- survival of the fittest - finely penned......... overall life itself is a stake where there is the option of foul and fair game to be played.......the choice is in ones hand..... enjoy the game with fairness and love. thanks for sharing/salu

Nature's cosmic design requires much thought to understand the balance of life.and death-all part of the eternal cycle.
