the Beacon


Somewhere in the velvet black sky
hidden among the stars
where the unearthly spirits fly
where the sunís fire sparks
trail through the velvet black
sun spots creating a beacon
a lighthouse upon the spiritís track
for those that wander on
loose the pureness of spiritís soul
seduced by earthly sins
heavenly creatures slowly fall
descend to earth, decay begins
doomed to wander the boundaries
between lightís and darknessí domain
ghosts among humanity
until through lessonís they gain
the ability to see beyond sight
recognizing the beaconís calling
they ascend in spiritual flight
returning to heavenly surroundings.
