Resurrection of Love
Swimming ashore from land afar,
Reaching a promised wealth,
Capturing the flowering scene,
Finding his inner self.
Walking along a forest path,
Stooping at a spring,
Peering into the mirrored glass,
Soft, like an angel's wing.
Suddenly, the wind picked up,
The water rippled unclear,
He squinted his eyes to see again,
A face below overcame his fear.
Joy entered his heart once more,
He turned about to hold her tight,
But when he saw the empty space,
He pondered at his plight.
Looking back at the goddess face,
Smiling there below,
Figuring out her watery fate,
At once he couldn't say no.
Jumping into the silvery veil,
Drowning his mortal's soul,
Swept back into the current of life,
Below on a grassy knoll.
