The Calling

The Calling

By Jacob Vinson

To the boundaries of sky

Past the glimmer in our eyes

Lies a synapse of heart and mind

Brace yourself for the slide

5 Across the planets

Beyond the stars

Where fire dances with ice

In the dark unknown of space

Look back to our home

10 An elliptical image of our world

A tiny speck in a floating void

Impearled with a celestial flurry

* Aeria Gloris, Heavenly Glory

Never will I look away

15 Spirits rising and falling

Calling, Calling,

In the depths of longing

Yearning ensues and enthralls

For what life has left me

20 Backtrack through the heavens

Running to fight the shadow of a lie

I’m both the defendant and the arbitrator

Never again will I leave behind

The chasms beneath the moon

25 Filled with singing souls

Calling, Calling,

In the depths of longing
