MUNIFICENCE
For nougth but day, the light doth shine;
Stars move in easy pace, to spaces bound;
Look not toward heaven, with sad divine;
Within the mind, there dwells, honed report;
Thy heart, cherubic as the light doth shine;
In this, the transience of mortal blight
Why searcheth far away, to places not of thine;
Here now he dwells , while amongst as afar;
A wasteful effort, an insult, the searching tine;
The wild daisy thrives in heat and wind,
Generous charity, for the light doth shine;

  8. I remember the model of the FOLD--about the burning man--I wondered that I had seen this form before. I haven't tried it, but it is pleasing to read it and come to rest at the rhymes and on the folds. Not many carry true munificence, unfortunately.

    Is this Monday rite/write also meant to be a prompt?

  12. "The wild daisy thrives in heat and wind," I love that line. It gives hope that we can thrive in whatever desert live places us in.
