Luminous

When a pinched sparrow draws its last breath
                       i cling to you
When the ages fulfill their doom
                       i see through you
In Time... in feast... in sin... in tempest...
                       i succumb... to you,
like a fugitive sunbeam succumbs to an unfledged mother's smile

I can see clearly now... through pillars of absolution,
unfathomable in the firmest clutch of deliverance
                       let me enfold you!..
and turn your last breath to ash and stone... and healing feather...
so i can live again... in Thy embrace!

Memories are clouds traversing the rear windows of the soul
In peace... in war... in truce... in sweet surrender

Through gaping chasms in pain and deep sorrow,
i flee a stream of penitent pilgrims,
just to flare in the grace of your last fallen angel...
