Literature Text

In the common places, everyday spaces,
God is hidden, a divine concealed,
But look you well into their myriad faces,
God lingers there, a divine revealed.

With silvered tongue tasting molten gold,
Raphael sings his sweetest thunder,
Heaven's laugh, growl of blue zircon,
Mortal lungs rend the world asunder.

And when that shining son falls silent,
The sighs of Uriel fill the night,
In shadow warm, he dreams of science,
Mortal skin weeping muted light.

Neither song nor sigh for the gentle one,
Seraphiel breathes with the rushing tide,
One thousand colours of a setting sun,
Spill endless from his mortal eyes.

And when all are gone, search well the darkness,
Press thine ear to the yawning void,
Do you hear the rhythm of Azrael's slumber?
Mortal heart counting mortal coil.

This is very soothing to my troubled mind, It is this kind of artistic creation that can grab one by the short&Curlys and tell you that everything is just fine, thanks.

This is a beautiful poem, that evokes all sorts of imagery and mystery. The rhyme scheme seems to be ABAB at times, but the last stanza doesn't have any rhyme scheme, which is curious. Anyway, keep writing that poetry, because you're clearly good at it!

I was assigned this my :iconreadthine-readmine: and, I'll be honest, I know very little about poetry.  However, the words do seem to flow naturally and you do have a passion for what you wrote.  I can see it in each verse and they flow so well that, if you added music to it, you could turn it into a song.  You bring to mind a beautiful picture of heaven and the fragments of it that you can find all over the Earth.  I also love how you make references to nature, which is one of my favorite subjects to talk about and my favorite scenery to view.  Yet you also combine elements from the earth to elements from heaven in such a beautiful manner.  My only issue is the final verse where none of the lines seemed to rhyme even in the slightest.  I know that not all poetry has to rhyme but, judging by the other verses, you seemed to have gone for a rhyming type of style.  Even if only two of the lines rhyme.  Other than that little issue, the poem is very beautiful and it shows your passion very well.  I am very happy to have read it.
