justified harmonies

the harp of holy temples in mourning
as lightning splits the shadows;
the stone honeycomb—a gesture of the heart
animating the longing for connection
in a full moon of enlightenment—
the transience of beauty and wisdom;
physical existence is required for life,
everywhere unique and the same—
the dragon floods of mountains
the battle of rampaging winds in the desert

a painting on a mirror forms
an image of an image when another
mirror is held up to the first;
in the cold reality of the heart,
often this will pass for love—
a great anchor in the dark seas
bound by oaths with chance bonds intermixed,
the hallowed point of justified harmonies
