A Prototype of Glory

A Prototype of Glory

written by: Josh Pampam



look at the obsidian
in the rare touch of light,
the mid-month moon
in the depth of the night;

look at the garden
in her summery dress,
and sniff the scent of grapes
in a winepress.

before you look at her —
a goddess in human form,
whom with her person
moves ‘midst storm.

her smiles
that slight sorrow from miles,
her poise
that freezes men’s heart of choice,
and the well-wreathed words
that boom out of her mouth —

Makes me call her,
“A Prototype Of Glory.”
