One's Shadowless Moment 
One's Shadowless Moment

That which we embrace
That which we shun
That which we serve


Man's strange bedfellow
Remaining often long in the wings
Allowing shadow-light to become constant
Inviting ghost-like impressions
Enjoin one's timeless opacity of reason

Edification reveals
Experience rejecting idleness
Determined to share
Clover-rich bounty
Free of any fear
Sagacity being void of threat
As predators ignorant
Discover wisdom unconquerable

Prepares its ungloved hands
To wave its alert
Ready to allow
Hidden time to luminesce

Cautious to act
Knowing empirical reality
Must first pass through
Emotion's unreliability
Patiently pauses

White hot focus holds sway
Peripheral resistance wanes
Formulae satiated
Acceptance invites convergence

Once in asylum
No longer struggling to be
Stands naked at last
Heart and mind fused
Light embodying darkness
Like the ever-forming oneness
Of sunrise comprising sunset
Birth ripening awaited death

Author Notes
So often we give too little acknowledgment to the process of maturing.

It has a certain musicality. I sincerely enjoyed it.

excellent work....this reminded me of when I used to dread getting older, not knowing that youthful power was replaced by a different kind of strength and wisdom.
I also thought of it as being addressed to, or of a poet or other "sayer"

I like how you begin some stanzas with a word, I think it adds depth to the poem.
