Rubaiyat

Long the travels made in the night

Long the farewells in early light

Long the silence in hours cost

Before these dreams were made to fight

Lines made deep, then shallow, then crossed

Progress taken for gain, some lost

Along the path, where tears were shed

In soothing fires, fueled on exhaust

Now passion reigns within the head

Desire quelled, the heart like lead

Begins to shift, indeed, unfold

Gaining nourishment on love fed

To blossom revealing pure gold

To become the stories untold

Clearing away darkness to shine

Embracing the way to be bold
