Times afar

(originally composed in 2009)

Black eyed damsel look around,
Living in one prayer all along.
Brightly laying the days received;
Playing too far to belong.

Once a night, once to see:
A single life dawn thrives,
Taking, breaking myriad lines,
Touching the aching self to thy rise.

Times afar deep within holding up
All that can ever be; sprouting,
Flowing, like ocean weeds breed,
Soothing they seem, enfolded to swing.
