"When The Blades Of The Swords Shine"
On a journey to justice for Justice everywhere,
By Mandamus of the Great Heavenly Cloner,
I wake up daily — to see Eos kissing the Sun, —
And stand by the tower of Justice to recite:
This is a unique day to create wonders…!
Rise up to serve and fulfil thy sublime task,
Going throughout the planet, — resting no where —
Showing that the brightness of thy sacred swords
Is an invitation to those willing to kill ambition,
The egotism; the indifference and fanaticism,
To become citizens of the kingdom of gratitude,
A confederated country within the realm of love;
A state of justice in the empire of creation…
Land of the just where ambrosial and edible meals
Are served as daily bread to all, and one may use…
Enjoy all one can, with nothing to be spoiled away,
Sharing the grace of the doers and togetherness
In partnership with the Great Cloner and Architect,
For this is the last Will of Nature to be complied!
Let's act before the Sun kisses the dews of the dawn,
For the deviant asinine clouds of the human sky,
Which covers the glade of the forest of ignorance
Must be dissipated at once and retrieved forever,
If we don’t want Hope and the light of Peace to fade.
March towards that forest — glistening steadily —
As fireflies and pathfinders… Reach the open space
And let the blades of thy swords shine benisons!
Let the diffusible light of dignity warm mankind
To awaken people under the Holy Torch of Justice!

|It is a time for serious actions by shining swords because hope and the light of peace are fading fast in our world.

|A sermon, no doubt constructed by a mind of intense aptitude which enables it to compile words in tuneful order. Though not directed to the common man in its linguistic style, it is none the less challenging to those of an enquiring mind.
As always I find no fault in this piece.

|Like a beneficent rain; tears of a visionary, whose gaze out upon a dying landscape calls forth (again) the beauty and honor that is fast vanishing. There are times, as we've all experienced, when the garden will exsiccate, dry up, and die, so the soil can again be worked, enriched, and regenerated, in preparation for the next harvest to appear. Such it is, and has always been, with the Earth, and with people.|
