Describing the Goddess

The Goddess

‘Tis folly to try,
Yet again an attempt
With but pen and a sheet
My decree should be sent

Yes, a message of breadth
Nay, a statement of length
Forged ‘o thine memory
Cast in verse eloquent

Each word ’tis necessary
Punctuation precise
Exquisitely rendered
And edited thrice

The Goddess my tale
Her description my task
My words hence to write
With none else to ask

Every day, every lifetime
Sorting the beauty
On her magickal path
‘Tis an honorable duty

Whence to start, do ask
Such a time honored question
And how much to include
Or to leave to suggestion

In the past or the now
Oh how worthy each time
Accolades and deeds
Unique and sublime

The lives and the moments
Ones touched and improved
Blessings were rendered
Heartache removed

Gifts shared so freely
Love and compassion
Valued time most of all
Never shorn out of fashion

Words carry power
While whispers are healing
She studies your hands
Her sight quite revealing

Yet skilled as she is
Mere a part of her beauty
Gorgeous and unique
Her soul ’tis completely

Depths of eternity
Found deep in her eyes
They say she makes heaven
Complete with its skies

Yet beyond all accolades
Each measured for miles
How the room illuminates
At each of her smiles

Perfect I’d state
And support it in line
She’s without compare
I call her divine

I write about everything and sometimes nothing at all. I'm fascinated by old things, rusty things, abandoned places, or anywhere that a secret might be unearthed. I'm passionate about history and many of my pieces are anchored in one concept of time or another. I've always been a writer, dating back to my youth, but the last decade has been a time of growth for me. I'm continually pushing the limitations of vocabulary, syntax, and descriptive phrasing.

    Loved the phrasing and rhyme Ralph. I would also like to meet this Goddess –
