The glory of the world,
washes over my well worn body.
The magnificence of creation,
the total harmony of nature,
the absolute certainty provided,
by the knowledge of life's continuance,
rages through my soul.

The brilliance of love,
flashes in my sorrow soiled mind.
The gentleness of sweet lovemaking,
the urgency felt in passions thrust,
the sweet release in climatic lust,
dream states induced in afterglow,
ease through my heart.

The glory of the world,
touches magic upon my dying flame.
Flashes of sunlight in the morn,
flickers of flame in campfire night,
tendrils of melody in child song,
essence of harmony in lover's laugh,
bathe my dirty, well used mind.

The beauty of this world,
comes to me in many ways.
Fathomless, unrelenting ways,
only to look, to feel, to see,
only to open myself, to be me,
only to allow you, a love to be,
touch me and make me whole.

Your last two posts sound as if you have had an epiphany. Well done, sir!

Now this is gorgeous - talk about feel the atmosphere. Really well done; I particularly like the 3rd verse.
