859 Benediction [10 April 2012]

Benediction (noun): meaning, among other things, ‘an utterance of good wishes’.

To describe him is thus:
Eyes full of starlight,
hair of sunset-tinted chestnut,
and a voice so deep,
rumbling like rainy day thunder
throughout his chest.
He shines bring in the world,
a light of cerebral appeal
to a thirsting audience,
aimlessly flailing in a desert
bereft of intelligent discourse
and artful brilliance.
He belongs to no one
and to everyone,
though my arms do wish
to hold him close,
perhaps just once,
to walk beside him,
in his ever glorious rise
towards legend.
A continent and an ocean
of land and of social circles
do separate myself from
rare chance to even shake
the warm hand that is his.
So shall I dream then,
joyous from a distance
in his climb towards renown.
