Hear, Goddess Of Light

Hear, Goddess Of Light

HEAR, GODDESS OF LIGHT

 

Can a heart melt
Like frozen wax
Lost in awe
Of a candle’s flame?

But you are
Unlike the wax consuming flame.
For in you, I am refined,
Not consumed!

Yet, like the wax,
My will is liquefied
And my wall is but molten stone,
As I stand before thee.

Oh goddess divine,
Stalk, crowned in petals,
Whose fragrance makes a sheep
Of the lion in me;

Cast your sunny gaze
At this son of Ife,
That his darkened heart
May know light again!

    Hmmm! Nice rhymes. As for the picture of the “goddess”, she’s got a lovely smile. Is she your sister? I see or imagine some resemblance……

    1. @starrilyn, would you be interested in her if I told you she was my sister…well she isn’t.

      Thanks for reading the poem.

        @xikay, Naaa. I’m a lady thank you very much.

        1. That does not stop some ladies I know @Starrilyn. Nice to know you are a lady *wink*

  2. Nice poem, lucky girl.

    But the simile, ‘like frozen wax’ is awkward, where just ‘ice’ or ‘wax’ would have sufficed.

    Well done.

  3. Kelechi, thanks a lot. However, I hope you are aware that wax is either MOLTEN or FROZEN/SOLID. So mere wax is incomplete. Thanks for reading.

  4. I couldnt read the poem, i was busy reading that picture.
    Be kind to me xikay, and tell that picture of me, and how i am so wonderful.

    1. I have told the picture of you @ kaycee, now can you read the poem?

  5. It is a nice piece,and i pray too, that the goddess of light would hear your prayer and look kindly on you.
    The lady in the picture is pretty, i’m wondering…..is she this goddess?

  6. Aaw! that’s really sweet. i wish some one would write me such a lovely poem…………keep it up!

    1. I could write you one @okelani… all it would take is your picture and real name (LOL)

  7. I know my avatar is really pretty…..look at it and write a nice poem. (laughing)

    1. About an ogre that got scared looking at a lady’s face?

      1. lmao…..dats so ironic.

        1. No its not ironic @okelani. I like to say its poetically okelanic

  8. Sweet poem. @xikay kills it as usual.

    1. Thank you @louis … I appreciate your comment.

  9. BEAMING! @xikay nice to see you back.

    1. Oga @Shaifamily, i still dey here o… as the guardian angel.

        1. @Shaifamily You dey form like say you no know say na me and @seunodukoya dey save una from @raymond and im creations

  10. that picture is cool, its like it gave you the inspiration to pen down such marvelous lines of magic-well done

    1. Thanks @mikeeffa …you really got it right.

  11. Oh goddess divine,
    Stalk, crowned in petals,
    Whose fragrance makes a sheep
    Of the lion in me.

    Hit!

    Though tis’ only upon paper and pen can I write for love.

    1. @ostar, why only on paper?

  12. @ostar and @xikay. U guys should think abt setting up a poem collection. Ur wrks are splendid.

  13. @ xikay cos beauty is fleeting and the devil was once an angel.
    I don’t doubt there are angels and this could be one, I only
    trust pen and paper for their love is immortal.

    Man, you go places. Good piece always.

    @lactoo I am only afraid I can’t stop thinking, the more I reflect, the most I write.
    I am afraid too to get back to the corpus, but would soon do. Thanks.
