ABLUTION'Sonnet


                 As vernal coverlet seals winter's snow,
                 From nimbus urn, Aquarian heart so sleight
                 Decants time's cleansing waterfalls below
                 In pure ablution of past season's blight.

                 Remanding discord and consouling strife,
                 This host befalls renewed vivacity ~
                 Once sallow hearts now carpet verdant life,
                 With resurrected faith that we may see

                 Effluent love. Spring nascency's begun,
                 Anointing solar rays' descent on rills
                 Of rainbows hues ~ reflecting golden sun
                 In bounteous eyes of springing daffodils.

                 Enlightened by a sapient sun above,
                 Inspired by ablutions' flowing love.
