Future passed

degas sky


Fascinating, sanguine life.
Forever, seeming, beautiful, waiting …
The Jordan streaming,
hewn from stone.
that bedrock for all time.
O to grasp at last
the crimson cord,
and gaze upon future passed.


O contentment


Edgar Degas

Love as a wonder and beauty serene;
I wander within your eyes.
The depth of closeness is ever seen
in hopeful azure skies.

I hardly doubt a moment passed;
though doubt shall have its day.
To know forever’s gaze shall last,
O pardoned soul hold sway.

Final time is river crossed;
to sup with King on high!
Joy shall not ever be lost;
smile on contented sigh.
