by R. Saint Claire

Sheets of ocean pierced by Titans
Channeled on Leviathan’s back,
Swells and lolls, crests and heightens,
Mounting Sky’s sulphuric crack.

Grass of Parnassus envelopes;
Our legacy shall live on

Tenderly nurtured

Splinters of light cascade,
Filtering through dense wood
To land upon the water
As diamonds from the Gods;

That we may shine as stars do above

Perfumed in adoration
His eyes will not turn
Nor his heart burn
