"This dead man I am speaking of / Today will rise again"


Transcendental Sonnet #1320:

Awakening

 

He is old his chest is bony

He is cold his heart is stony

He ate the bitter fruit of love

He swallowed all the pain

This dead man I am speaking of

Today will rise again

 

The light returns to burned-out eyes

The flesh returns to bone

The heartbeat and the breath arise

The soft smooth flesh from stone

 

The senses are restored and take

It all in as a smile

Returns to grace a newborn face

Missed for a little while

This is very inspiring and reminds me of life and death that when one door closes another opens. Steve you are also a very special person and I continue to be blessed with your poetry.

Dear Stevie,
I agree with Regis. This poem is encouraging and shows me that you're reaching out into the light. Stay strong precious friend. There are those that care. You are so brave.
Wonderful poetry as always.
Love Chanti
