Shielded by a thoughtful torch (pantoum exercise)

poem by: Robert Kohlhammer
Written on Mar 24, 2017

       

The torch beam is radiantly bright 
To omit the darkest night
Awakening olde wordly
Dusk to dawn to twilight

To omit the darkest night
Against a fading page oydyssey
Dusk to dawn to twilight
awakening olde wordly 

Against a fading page odyssey
Sun and moon shine opposite
to have faith in the mystery 
Dusk to dawn to twilight

Sun and moon shine opposite
Dusk to dawn to twilight
A Cyclops opens and closes its socket
The torch beam is radiantly bright
