Chasing Visions



Catching glimpse of glory's face
Across room, around corner or bend
Heart leaps, begins to race
And from body and soul is rend


Without afore-thought to reason
Vessel and escence give chase
After such light of moon or sun
That dazzles even the stars in their infinite space


But ereathral-glow slips from desperate grasp
For every cry and suffered pain
Ever looser is mortal's tightening clasp
Over fading shadow and is all in vain

  • Comment from author about the poem: Some may wonder as to why I've selected 'Spiritual' as this poem's category. Normally, I like to leave my works open to interpretation. For this though, my input might be helpful in clearing up some confusion. The main theme is the quest of man to achieve spiritual/religious perfection, yet never attaining it. Because I had no specific religion in mind when I wrote it, so I considered category 'Spiritual' the next best thing.

    Beautifully well written. You've described it excellently....I only do not see why it is that assessment I would disagree.

      Thank you for your encouragement. Please refer to 'Comments from the Author'; I hope it clears up the confusion.

        Thank you very much, I just now did. And then I can agree, excepting for the folk the Lord saves, for they run not in vain nor chase transient visions....they do see and taste glory when all this vain life and world are over.
