Awakening the giant
Polished with bright crimson
she touched the glacial tip of Mont Blanc
a shock caused a tremor far below
shaking an Earth longing to awaken at last.
She followed the melting cap of gentle snows
into the shallow bed of their new home
rugged and smooth carving their way
for a story to be written in eternity.
Tracing vales hills and cozy landscapes
she cupped a fertile land into her warm palm
sculptress of harmonies and ecstasies
tireless as she drew to the next hollow.
Artfully polished with bright crimson
a magic wand are her finger tips
she sighs her deep satisfaction
the peak again radiates of luscious life.
It is not so very odd to consider the magnetic fields
render to them what is duly theirs in material days
for their pull may bring butterflies to their mates.
Unseen as gravity through infinite dark ocean waves
their journey reaches far beyond the imagination
magic carpet to the adventurous one, inviting all.
Here he sits once again brought to the nucleus of life
his being rearranged as the energy takes him closer
to the certain cause of unmatched delight.
Living in proximity of a nexus to all forces
peace prevails at last, for reasons unknown
as the strings of the universe sing in harmony.
Pulling as many particles as are his existence
resisting is futile, this fight he does not want to win
for completion here is the ultimate promise.
