I imagine the Messiah will come
draped in luminous light,
will cast pernicious shadows aside
with ferocious winds.
I believe redemption will one day come,
will face this epochal moment with southern reserve.
As day's warmth covets my soul,
I lift chin, heavenward,
ocean breeze my afternoon salvation,
celestial cloud of creamy magnolia white
swathed above me. Surely the breath of eternal spring.

Linked with "dVerse Poetics - In Haphazard Fashion" a word list of which I used 7 of 12. My attempt to create some sort of cohesion amongst randomly selected words. The host, Anthony Desmond, loves abstract poetry and this was his little "shove" to do that… sorry - 'tis not my thing :) Hope you don't mind my more pulled together "painting". :)
