A Commission Of Light & Shade

Enter the gray-haired myths

Chalked-up fear on yin & yang—

Lies? Not all obscures.

I and eye believe in love,

Potency shared; new info the kinfolk;

Stars die as bees after a sting

Embossing this tug-o-warrant!



Author's Note:

Most of my writings' tend to explore the psychological and historical realm, the deep halls and corridors of the human mind. This acrostic challenge/prompt inspired me to think about the roots of human perception in relation to an eclipse.

Thanks for reading! Feel free to leave a comment; subscription; coin. Let's beat our hearts together as poets of the ever-flowing Orb and outer layer at large; there's only one universe (maybe!), one song.

    Such an intriguing poem! Each line has so much to say here -- I feel like I could go down a rabbit hole really diving into the meaning of each. I appreciate your author's note so much because it really puts perspective into your inspiration for this. I really love the play on words I've seen you use, such as "I and eye believe in love," -- stunning! I love pieces that make me think and you've really done this here. Wonderful work, Christian! 🤗❤️

  • "I and eye believe in love". Loved that line the most. Loved your Acrostic!
