Love’s Manifesto


I wrote my manifesto 

In human hearts and souls

Invested in those pages

All my aims and goals


But they shredded all the paper

And tossed it in the fire

Abandoned in pursuit 

Of each his own desire


So I painted it across the sky

Brushed with gold and pink

And wrote in in the stars

Embossed in silver ink 


I recorded it in waves

Surf pounding on the shore

But ears were only deafened

And eyes could see no more


Stroked their cheeks with breezes

And perfumed the velvet rose

But still they never saw Me

Smoke burning eyes and nose


In the whisper of the grassy plane

On the crags where eagle's nest

In a newborn baby's cry

And in thunder, I was manifest


The world of harmony, of music 

Wobbled in its orbit

They couldn't read the manifesto

But instead chose to ignore it


Stepping off a balcony of stars

I clothed myself in flesh

To die the human death

Perhaps in this...

Love may manifest
