The sense of fantasy in these verses, invokes a pleasurable form a symbolism which reflects to a somewhat supernatural playful pictorial landscape. In the middle it will become somewhat more introspective and terrestrial bringing a similar form of a surrealistic imaginative process. Toward the end a stowaway successfully escapes the bounds of the mundane and perseveres in his quest for personal freedom. This is a metaphor involving our own personal search for a freedom of expression.
PERSEVERANCE OF EXPRESSION
Scintillating wisps of a hermit’s tale
are stimulating the muses immersed in melancholy
awakening the lyre to ring its melody
gliding on a breeze to a nightingale.
Whispering through the valley like a ghostly breath
the creeping fog engulfs the stream.
Water lilies blossom as an earthly bouquet
is conjuring a reminiscent dream.
Holding a candle against a blustering gale
we impose a structure, immense and awesome.
Whimpering children have come to cast
a series of scenarios upon a captain’s sail
inviting the nascent futuristic grail
as we confide with an inner spirit’s past.
Discovering the hidden meaning of love
as each pauper holds his chosen one.
The daughters of a royal’s protégé
have conceded their attempted martyrdom
and with the swinging of the pendulum
they arrive contented with their interplay
inducing a flirtatious pandemonium
with an intercommunal passing gleam.
Outlasting the perennial honorable induction
hovering is an eagle above a stowaway.
Escaping incognito over the seven seas
he procures blessings, Godspeed and absolution.
Meandering enduringly through the autumn leaves
he subtlety fashions a Milky Way.
Unnerving the sanctimonious impostor
he then curiously meddles in his former course
appending the diminishing luster
and recites a metaphysical remorse.
Shedding light upon the inevitable castaway
we then revel amid a revelation and impel the force
of redemption and faith we will foster.
