On love & strength (for Carol)

above the atmosphere
your love hovers
while angels look earthwards
to where ordinary souls
search restlessly for perfection

beyond the fallen statues
of death & decay
you are resurrected
on this crucifix of wonder
where the world can behold beauty

in the midst of love & hope
I hold you close
while all the gods
close their eyes in awe
& refuse to say a word
