What if Transparency ?

What if Transparency

we make love we give love
 yet sadness almost always fills our hearts
 there is a great void that block that imagination
 a peer of a sullen mast explosion

 still we are not mere robots in our circle of friends
 socialites with chatter boxes for voices
 we run circles around the exterior base
 paint pictures in the sky of an alabaster box in disguise

 the maddening hedges that fumigate the montage display
 perhaps this was the exact place where nomads went
 torn lashes in their visible spent brevity
 yet we arrange music in our heads

 as if for a brief moment we are reluctant to its sound
 the sun dial points to north but we persist going south
 a beautiful arrangement of flower beds out on the lattice ledge
 colors forming of a sparkling array of brilliance with blue & red

 Yet to become transparent in the madness of the day
 through a setting sun we run as naked predators out to pasture
 never to prepare for the great here after
 through its rudimentary laws of logic we lie helpless

 A tug at the heart will light the spark to where we need to go
 The promise that was made in the dark has now come to light
 A bitter sweet ending from all its strife
 left to ourselves we can do nothing lest we are attached to the vine

 Crafted in great elegance for all the world to see
 What is my last but parting plea
 Transparency
