~ ON THE WINGS OF TIME ~

~ ON THE WINGS OF TIME ~

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

O, but to breathe the breath
Of the angelic spirit of stratosphere
Upon a linear continuum of constants
Propelling the self through atmosphere
This ideal gift for removing fear

O, but to enjoy this life
With the palate of a taster of wine
Drink in the universe from an alien stream
Holding 'Love of God' above all inside
While floating gracefully upon the wings of time

'Tis this, I find
This magic, in life
I'll cling to it fast
This, most perfect glide....

We are so lucky to have some fabulous writers here on Cosmo! I just read Dblankportraits beautiful poem and now have yours to read too. What a treat!

A beautifully written poem, Tony. Polished as always. This poem gives such a warm feeling of peace. In trying times our faith is the one constant to help us through. 

Tis this, I find
This magic, in life
I'll cling to it fast
This, most perfect glide....

I love these words. They close the poem perfectly. Fantastic work. 👏👏👏 💐

Hello T,....This is beautiful and it takes me away from the isolation and lockdown we are having over the Coronavirus.  If we all could hold the love of God above everything, what a beautiful perfect world this would be, indeed.  To not live in fear would be a precious commodity for sure!  I am with you wanting to fly on the wings of time and understand life from a different point of view....a spiritual one that is filled with knowledge and love....eliminating fear altogether.  Such a lovely vision, Tony.   xo Love n Hugs, C ;)

This is just great, Tony! I was trying to decide which verse I like best, but I love the entire poem. It's perfect in rhythm and pace. The structure and wording is right on. This is really one of my favorite structural poetic verse in writing. 5 stars and like, brother poet!!
