I watched you sway between the licking flames,
Cracking a fortress carved from Godly rock.
Why did your furrowed gaze pull on my name,
Teasing the chains that shook upon the lock?
Our faiths are born from worlds light years apart,
With kin that will defend all bloodline sins.
How can this love bear out such selfish art,
as Bat'leths' swipe the night for traitor skin?
Religion gifts a light for those lost souls
Seeking a path to lead them through the storm.
When love becomes the brightest star of gold,
Cling onto human new life to be born.
~ ~ ~ ~ ~ O ~ O ~ ~ ~ ~ ~
When hearts deliver promise to this land,
Allow the stars to save the warring clans.
Excellent and original work, Michael, truly. Much like your Zombie sonnet, this is the kind of subject matter not often found in this form! But, like so much of your work, it is unique which is what all good art should be about.
Wow - so much depth and beauty. My morning mind cannot compute the full meaning of this right now, so I'll revisit after a coffee but I wanted to say this is stunning and the last few lines really resonated with me. Love being the universal (star-born) saviour of the human struggles. Amazing!
Michael, right now my brain isn't working properly lol so can't comment as I would like to because it just won't allow it but this says a lot to me though cannot put it into words.
A well written sonnet, with beautiful imagery that is striking.
