The Unicornís Glance

The moon illuminates my night...
Brightly.. to enhance even the hushed breeze...
All was quiet...
the night-song now an awed silence...

I peered into the evening...
A soft movement graced my sight....
An incandescence blazed for but an instant...
A glimpse of light through crystal...
through refulgent, cobalt glass...
Had the distant sun fallen from itís vaulted heaven to charm my
sight?

Still was I. Had my eyes deceived me? Could this be the moment
I had 
unceasingly hoped for?

I watched this incarnate beauty slip within my admiration...

Languidly he moved, 
His Footfalls so vigilant, 
So mellifluous was his stride...
he made no such sound to detect..

He watched and warded the lady slippers,
knowing not to intrude on such a bloom...
My eyes left him not...
My heart quickened with his every step...
And at long last...this resplendent Unicorn was nigh my side...

His horn spiraled toward the sky...I swear to spite the
stars...

His eyes alone told an ancient story...
speaking to me with all the trust and innocence of nature...
He seemed to illuminate his surroundings...

He let fall his supple head and ensconced his nose upon my
palms...

A single tear fell from my soul...
As I marveled this Unicorn tonight...

My tear fell to the ground...
..a mirroring surface of his light, as it slipped from my
cheek...

The unicorn observed it fall...
And upon its arrival to the fertile Earth...
he touched his horn to it...
Creating an amber stone....

He upraised his head..
to search into my eyes once more....

Than whinnied as he leapt...in such joy...
for he had found someone who understood...
to share in his spirit and will...
 

And knowing I had found that spirit, never to lose....
He fled...a bright ghost skillfully gracing the night...
in his great delight and speed...
Under the pale moon, 
one early autumn eve.... 

A breath left my lips...my eyes glittering with his essence...
In bewilderment I lifted my gem and held it fast...
...and as I strolled from our meeting place...
...to see home at last...
I smiled to hear the night-songs arise anew...

                           I Believe in Unicorns
                                    
                       Magical Creature - serving light,
                      Untamed Power - Graceful Might.
                      Symbol of Love, Truth and Purity,
                       Majestic, Proud, Wild and Free.
                                    
                                    
                        Stronger than a raging river,
                        More graceful than the seas.
                       Swifter than the fleeting winds,
                           You shall live forever.
                                    
                      No saddle would you ever accept,
                         No bridle could sustain you.
                      'Tis the Unicorn destined to roam,
                          No rein can ever tether.
                                    
                                    
                         And yet, the frailest ribbon,
                          Tied by the virgin hand,
                      Captures you with bonds of Love,
                        That you shall ne'er escape.
                                    
                           I listen with my Heart,
                         To hear you when you call.
                        'Tis the voice of the Unicorn,
                          It teaches - Love is all.
       "John Van Horn" <unicorn6@earthlink.net>
 
Unicorn!!!
Out of the mists of the long forgotten past,
I remember,
Goodness, Gentleness, Purity, Love, and strength, promises, covenants.
My long forgotten past,
And my newly rembered future.
Unicorn,
What I was,
What I can be.
