By Matthew M.C. Smith


Dream on a breeze of summer eve’s tree-dappled light

Do not fear the advancing shadows

Let Autumn storms take your heart high on hurricane’s rise

Do not fear flight or fall

Let winter ravage the moors of your mind

Do not fear forgetting or fleeting time

Let spring waters stir the motions of your cold heart

Do not fear the flood

Let the white sun quicken capillaries crimson

Do not fear chaos or chasm

Hold these lone moments in the poem’s bitter silences

Break free, break free from your bonds

Walk through Eden in your broken chains

Follow its flickering sun forever


Note: ‘Eden’ is neoromantic and elemental
