Aurora of Life

On this morning
In the glowing aurora of life
Atop the blue, blue
Continent of my yearning,
I am again awakened
Upon the arrival of an overture,
The incandescent unisonance
Of your love, its perfection
Acknowledged only by way
Of my tears carried upon the
Chrome light of gratitude.
Here you inaugurate the
Moment of my dawning heart,
Teach me Rites of Heaven
As I watch my being
Take on the simplicity of joy,
Opulence of purity.
Here I see you again now,
Forever becalming
The sails of my heart‑ship, 
Fulfilling them with your breath
Of total innocence and integrity.
Launched, I view land of
My yearning, the port
Of your warmth drawing closer,
Realize I am listed
In your register of beauty
Impelled by the emotion of God
Where I stand
At the helm of longing,
The bearer of your loyalty.
