TAKE IT UP

Take it up,
the tool,
let it express its worth,

the details of its code,
shape the universe,
create a new one;

force, with its power,
the stars to change their place,
gain for just one object,
beauty, peace,

an edifice
of red and gold, 
bold as an organ
sounding through
in hollow rooms of jewels,

dripping sweet nectars,
sensuously delivered
between the two,

the instigator with his sounding rod,
deep down in the soft,
silky bed
of warm expectant must,

meet the textures 
random floating
millions 
clash, 
flash,
flames fuse this union,

becoming
something new,
wonderful,
life.
