Home (sestina)



Gem amidst pebbles, iridescent earth


swirling wishes; creations create


a stone gives birth to beads of light


dancing thru dreamy forests that sing


fair songs of creatures shaped by forever


this magical carnival we call home


child in the corner, banished at home


missing sound in this symphony called earth


from the orchestra that lasts forever


not from him comes beauty’s touch to create


like a finch alone in the dark won’t sing


lost, yearning, the finch, lost, yearning for light


but forward the march with loud claims of light


conquers and conversions, home by home


we are right, king of the mountain we sing


as if land can be owned, puzzling the earth


in universes where all doth create


human forays fall short of forever


tools of thought, they say solve forever


like a maze to capture love’s light


not a rose can ruse intellect create


but discoveries misused find a home


no computations when beauty raised earth


manifestations of finches who sing


immortal we want of us, others to sing


does living in minds mean life forever?


today's thoughts, dreams, bouncing around earth


will fade into new aeons of grand light


even to vapor this planet called home


as beauty unfolds, new cosmos create


know all will pass too with all they create


know all will be born with new songs to sing


self-import owners, it’s a rocky ride home


unlike the hearts, hearts set on forever


the raven crows, rest your heart on the light


man out of the corner one day this earth


live to create, the dance moves forever


so dance and sing, in the flickering light


everywhere's home, we who are born on earth
