A Drone’s View – A Glosa


A drone’s view of Chimney Beach where a womb of stone can be seen.

Autumn Leaves Dropping…

When we founded the light,
Our pride gave way to love
Our souls were conjugated silent
In a perfect verb with its own shine.

~ Gavriel Navarro


Made from Source’s stone
this womb stands
riveted in space and time
an instrumental core, our
heart’s kingdom evidenced
from whence darkest night
sounded incipient desire
for a Phoenix with vision.
Thus sound premiered as sight
when we founded the light,

its energy chaotic
yet marshalled, organizing
into eye and wing – vision
interpreting void at last.
It was at once terrifying
and gratifying, viewed from above –
heart’s force tormented
within its own heat amidst
gravid flame’s unforgiving glove.
Our pride gave way to love

for potential, even as imagery
formed, flailing
in unspeakable pain
pursuing All heart’s quest
to see itself and be known.
Evil, unfettered and vibrant,
entered cosmic comprehension,
galvanized around Heart’s
tendency toward tyrant.
Our souls were conjugated, silent,

the eminence of destruction
pondered, this inescapable
truth-filled view of Self.
In reverence, Source architected
a womb of sacred stone,
malefic power’s cradle and shrine
where all that is savage and savaged
might hear a holy lullaby, salvaged from
pain, passion and ecstasy divine –
in a perfect verb with its own shine.

The verses above have been crafted using a variation
on the glosa poetic form, weaving new lines with the opening quatrain
of Gavriel Navarro’s poem, Autumn Leaves Dropping….
The variation noted manifests as a set of verses exploring
a subject outside the topic of Navarro’s original poem.

    anyway, how do you know I am flying drones? check this video on my YouTube channel….

      What a beautiful and dynamic perspective, Gavriel! I especially love the view of the paddle-boarder, a speck against water and the extending line of land. Whatever preconceptions I had of Tokyo were blown away just now.

      I did not realize you were a drone-afficionado. That said, it also wasn’t til the very end of writing this poem that I realized this poem’s Phoenix, called forth to allow Source to see itself, was a drone capable of spanning all of creation. (I have what is sometimes a pre-occupation, and at other times a fascination, with different iterations of drones and their capacity for creativity and destructiveness, depending on the intent when arming them.)

      Thank you, for the use of this quatrain of yours. I’m a bit startled at having so quickly employed an element of another of your poems to generate verse I don’t even know wants expression until it is written.

      This link takes you to a drone being used in the area I live. I am compelled by how these new technologies are thoroughly evolving humans’ perspective-scape.
