~ ON THE WINGS OF TIME ~

~ ON THE WINGS OF TIME ~

Oh, but to breathe the breath
Of the ineffable nature of time
On breezes that sing of glorious wings
Born to soar on the nature of life
This most perfect measurement for rhyme...

Oh, but to breathe the breath
Of the angelic spirit of stratosphere
On a linear continuum of instants
Propelling the soul through atmosphere
And most ideal for jousting with fear...

Oh, but to enjoy this life
With the palate of a taster of wine
With love from the ideal wife
Holding love of God above all inside
While floating gracefully upon the wings of time...

'Tis this I find
A sweetness in life
I shall cling to it
This,
       Perfect,
                    Glide....

Hi T!  I loved this one.....I think how we spend our time and who we spend our time with shows what is important in our life...and to find joy in the simplest things in life.  When we do not take for granted the presence of God's spirit in everything, then there can be a deeper appreciation for time.  I loved the imagery and feel of gratitude....all done with perfect poetic flow.....I am happy that you mentioned the love and God and wife as being a reason to enjoy life....lol  I am happy you posted this one today.  It is beautiful.  xo Love n Hugs, C ;)

Tony, so you have a way of putting the abstract into words that are understandable and yet still ethereal.
That that is quite a talent I myself love poems that are Misty spiritual..and make me reach for my mind.
They're also full of information if. One cares to look.  The happy earthly life is almost an oxymoron... But in your case the miracle is true.
