luminescence (Photo credit: eye of einstein)

They call you mystery
Arching from the void
Of limitless possibility
A face beyond time
Conscious thought or design
Your call an ancient melody
In abstract tongue

Such light falls across the sky
Luminescence from your eye

They call you alchemy
Black rose turns to red
Then white
A phoenix from the ashes, rises
With wings of pure light
And from this deep nigredo born
Regret, remembrance, delight

They say in heaven when you fell
The angels knew this very well

They call you adversary
Judge of faith and boundless awe
Rising from the chaos
Of all the choices gone before
Right hand of God or foe
It’s all perspective here
Within the ebb and flow
Of luminescence

    They call me lots of things…most of which are unrepeatable.
