Tetractys: The Well is Deep
Go in peace to seek the cleansing water.
Wait beside the road for those who hunger
Water of life
Quench and fill
Can give me life
That lasts beyond the days my eyes grow dim?
Terza rima: Tiers
Folded into mercy like a glove
Wrapped in arms of peace and full of light
Pulled from bitter torment by your love.
Held without disdain throughout the night
Promised hope and beauty like the stars
Broken vessels whole and set to rights.
Biding through the storm with battle scars
Firm upon a rock of endless power
Mortal and yet endless like you are
Eternity is crammed into an hour.
