The Enchanting Chord

Post by Ray W » Fri Nov 20, 2020 5:44 pm

A colorful word murmured in a blind ear
will usually merge into disappear
but sometimes some rhymes blend like fire to sword
and heart-tempered strike the enchanting chord.

Deep inside the human mind, deeper than sorrow can mine
pool scenes of tomorrow, dreams unfollowed, uncut humankind--
a diamond history of life and light and the heavens above
that true-blue stars reflect, sundew hearts true-love.

It takes only a brief leaf-kiss ripple in this unfathomable sense
for buried pleasures to resurface as priceless treasure
and for distant smiles and starry sighs to together forever
in child-eyed remembrance.
