Archived: Incandescent by Annette Miller

Glowing and radiant,
Flaming and shining
Bright as pure essence.
Day-blind stars,
Outshone by sunlight, await
Greater glory in night’s shade.
Hidden by contamination
As fear our dreams from burning,
Seen clearly from the heights
With troubles far below.
The unfathomable depths
Of a lover’s eye,
Magnified across the skies and spread
Like a painted canvas.
Unearthly fluorescent swirls,
Out of reach,
In a cosmic river dance
That runs to infinity
Carrying us with it
In perfectly inconceivable blurs
Of wonder, disbelief, amazement,
Pure and untarnished loveliness.
