Cycle Of Golden Light

~

Cycle of…

A journey together
as friends, best friends
golden flicker at twelve and thirteen
began, the flame that would last
fifty years eternally

heard from all around
a soothing sound from she
long breath, a moment, for thought
yet a pulse is not complete
without its counter beat

committed they are
to one another and those surround
in awe of those, afar
that have achieved much, with so little
where light has grown from darkness, night

radiates through to the nest they built
full of life and love
of family and friends
they watch, witness the beauty
of what they formed

a new moon graces the sky
dark as an eyeโ€™s pupil, shadows nowhere to hide
the month begins, rebirth, cycle, anew
every generation, looking up
grounded, their values

seeing this all, one row back
a circle full, from one to the next and onward
endlessly, little golden sparks light up
sharing and shining
pure as can be

an adventure that has only reached, a new chapter
they stand side by side, reading the lives of their beloveds
as the day folds, content and together
their hands clasp, held soft, held tight
encompassed by their hearts’

โ€ฆ Golden Light,
