A Soul Seeking…

(94th Septon couplet 2-9)

somewhere in a heyday of twilight time
when words be sung in its sweetest rhyme

a soul within the winds will take me high
with hope beneath the wings upon the sky

the wilderness that haunts my day and night
darkened the clouds hampering my sight

in strong spirit, a soul stood still seeking
even in the dullness of the horizon believing

on a glow from the distant star in flame
to feel the heat and warmth of love the same

heart torched in a burning passion of pain
adhere to exist in a life without refrain

let the song be sought so to sing once more
among the rhythm of the waves on the shore

kissing away the footprints of a weary soul
devouring one’s self in memories to console

the imperfection in the wholeness of being
and condole the desolation of a soul seeking
