tom taylor - elijah atom

elijah atom

a new face joins the human fray full of expectation
and his own light filled being leaning into the future
of our uncertain planet unhinged and wobbling on
its trajectory yet he is full of promise and the new

this is no place to begin but still we hope for a right
purpose and a curiosity to fill the emptying and filling
of the shelves on which to place his flame and joy in
what is to be discovered and enjoyed in the fortune of

his destiny to be alive is enough challenge to bring to
life the possible and the new in the season of one being
to forge the light again to mark the tides with pleasure
and to walk the paths with others toward the new day
