The Illuminates ******************************* dedicated to Josh and Dana


dedicated to Josh and Dana 
with love 



~

                                                The Illuminates 

The Illuminates
striding onto a ribboning path
aware of the impact their scenes of love
conjure-shimmer upon remote romances
magically mystically brought near
The Illuminates
Igniting impassioned scenes left in
the litter-flotsam of mild milky memory
Rising from such mildewed lifeless sea-pool
Breaking surface as a whale on the tip of a tail
Filled with thrumming need, gleaming
as sun-soaked light follows a storm
The Illuminates
sign a contract for marriage soon to come - pen sparks dancing witnesses
freeing the flickered fire of a once-aflame love 
beyond earthly price - and all smile 
The Illuminates
breathing life into the spectre of a younger day
blowing away the hum-drum haunt of what once was
blazing the power-promise of this present and all that will come to pass
The Illuminates
Children to parents – Parents to children
Bonded in boundless bounty 
Bathed in coupled and collective
Luminosity 
Lush, insatiable immortality shining in the eyes of
children yet unborn 
links added, the gleaming chain continues 
unbroken 
and all smile as love illuminates the rainiest corners of each pounding heart

  5. Gloriously joyous - the promise of love. Your poem is as luminous as the young couple . I love how they are surrounded in your poem with the love of family and friends and the promise of children to come........My daughter is getting married - on the beach! - this summer so I totally resonate with this joyous poem.
