love’s beacon

love’s beacon in the heart shines across all seasons
and continents illumining the deepest arches in the
room of time’s own fabric from the striations of the
lingering tides which sweep across our inner landscape

into the morning’s forgiveness of the light itself which
comes into us willingly no partitions to the heart’s fire
and semblance on the face of the earth we all inhabit in
this glaze of emotion and sentiment forever willing shine

and smoothes all cursory platitudes from heir emptiness
filling them with meaning and certainty for the long journey
into love itself the glowing ember and hologram of self is
borne aloft in these emotions which come up in us constantly
