Creatures - excerpt from Legends, Myths and Journeys by annienomad~cyberpoet


Creatures

We are creatures of Light and Dark
we drink the sun
we dream the moon
heaven conceived our being
thought became flesh
nature bore us from
her perfect balance
…and trembled...

We are creatures of Love and Rage
crashing our illusions
on the jagged edge of
our ego fortress
searching for a small
break in the storm
an idyllic, peaceful cove
some welcoming shore

We are creatures of Hope and Despair
cynical romantics
hobbled by longing
every breath a prayer
that faith can render
true and profound the
unfulfilled promise

We are creatures of Habit and Chaos
we punch the clock
we toy with death
heaven conceived our being
thought became flesh
nature bore us from
her perfect balance

she still trembles...
