Traveller’s Aubade

Moonlight and starbeams

nod reluctantly

patiently enduring their early mourning retreat

reflecting torridly

upon their contempo journal entries……

Unique motes of cosmic brilliance

eternally grateful

even, satisfied

to have

engraved their passionate lyrics

upon the living texture of…..

Traveller

 

Triumphant morning light

bursts spontaneously

from the parturition of morn

sprinting furiously headlong

craving their newly apportioned

instances of time and space

upon the living tapestry of…..

Traveller

 

Their nightly impatience

offset by daily victory

conquering an infinity of translucent milky glow

now in abeyance and adrift of gravity

 

He covets succor from invisible debris

cast off from an eternally overhead

nocturnal stellar rainbow

Traveller

 

Traveller, arms akimbo

positioned stolidly

whilst

stoically facing the birth of dawn

 

His now growing, expectant smile

radiates in tandem with the emerging sunrise

 

Effortlessly, patiently, lovingly…..

first his left arm

then his right

Traveller extends and offers

his naked palms and bare forearms

each, as a willing canvas

mirroring the eastern born Sol

 

Aeaeae artes

 

Fatidic scars….. surface

conceived by the newborn aurora

painlessly inscribe

radiant symbols

sublime diagrams

ancient words

whilst dancing randomly

upon his now pulsing forearms

and then ….. all scratchings levitate

level

balanced

harmonious

with his own

ocean blue eyes

 

Traveller …. Reads!

 

Of Futures not yet

…..that rhyme with chromas of nebulae

Of Pasts that should have been

…..that purr with exploding novae

Of Presents that might yet occur

…..that pause with the hue of possibility

 

Traveller prescinds

…..each and every

one and all…..

…..quotidian souls…..

he has ever encountered

 

And is again engulfed

with gratitude and love

 

Traveller’s dawning words

sung solo

have always been….

 

“Thank you”

    Lovely and mythical. I’m in love with the phrase ‘quotidian souls’…something about that just sparks my imagination.

  3. Wonderful! I like the way you weave the word ‘traveller’ through the poem

  4. This really strikes a chord with me…”Moonlight and starbeams” is a beautiful phrase, it will ring in my head for a while. Thanks to Traveler for sharing his gratitude, and to you for sharing Traveler with us!
