You perfect angel
with your wings fluttering
in violent metamorphosis,
urging ever onward
toward the next stage of evolution.
You pristine paradise
with your heart of diamonds
crushing all the clay and coal,
reaching for higher ground
where a flag can be raised
to the opposite pole of lifes eternal sorrow.
You magnificent mistress of chaos
with your whimsical wiles
and your borderline personality revelations
that cater only to the virtuous
aspects of a heaven on earth destination.
You greater glory
with your wax sun
melting on the perfect path
where our love is paved in gold
but can never be shared
lest it disintegrate into oblivion.
You creature of the cosmos
with your universal appeal
that flutters beyond the spaces
of simple sexuality and materialism,
floating into fluffy clouds
that reverberate with a lack of inhibition.
You Pagan of Light
