Bumbling, blessed;
burned by the
beneficent beliefs of duplicitous Humanity
we Fall,
raining lust and loneliness upon the

Yet, truly,
lies the death of us
benighted souls beginning the journey
tied to lives past,
never realizing that momentary madness
is indicative of the Eternal,
and that there really is nothing new
under the Sun.

While we wait upon the Water of Life
to revive our shattered souls
- in the Infinite Interim -
Jesus nudges Buddha who snorts Manna
from Heaven, providing sustenance to
the Mahdi, who,
chuckling uncontrollably,
sends Kali and Shiva into paroxysms of panic,
Arjuna and Siddhartha observing the scene
- nail-biting, niggling nods to normality -
shivering in the cold of impotent

But, there is hope!
Indubitably so, inevitably iridescent,
reminiscent of Rebirth.

Beyond Life, Death calls and
the Sun of Transcendent Vision
shines soul-born, spirit-destined and
mind-altered in recognition of the body's
blessed Being-ness,
harmonizing hallelujah and hosannah,
while the Heavenly Chorus hums.

Clever and creative and thought-provoking. Always hope, can't we? When faith grows shaky, reading a wise and passionate poem by an
author who is not afraid to dive deep and stay long enough to really look bolsters it. Peace, Freedom, and Equality for All! 'Pea' <3

Salutations and Benisons to Poet Mark A. Rockeymoore.

I see that You have been a guest of Phoebus and Minerva, and that You have been guided by CLIO and ERATO.

Thank You for returning to the Humankind’s Slaveyard to deliver this key to open the doors of awareness to freedom’s viability.

I have enjoyed the scent of a philosophic-poetic Flower from the Poet’s garden... “Static Renewal, or, the Sun of Transcendent Vision” glows.

In respect and admiration,

Andre Emmanuel Bendavi ben-YEHU
