Rise Now

Beneath the calm
Belies a struggle
Of want and not
And gain no more

It’s where is kept
The dearest secret
Pride and polish
Spun to lore

A sweet fragrant
Uniquely common
Treasured
Portion not yet shared

Rise now
For on this shadowless eve
That solitarily embracive provocation
Gives way to fellowship and love
