Rising To Honor *co-written with James Whitworth*
Winged lightning pierces the distant night,
Bearing crystal flames of prismatic light.
Radiance climbs chromatic skies o'er the east,
As a summit of shimmering mists is reached.
Sentinels of darkness move stealthily aside;
Arrows of luminance fill the surrounding skies.
This challenge accepted with no fear of defeat -
Sweet surrender of spirits too long incomplete.
We stand united through mutual conquests,
Starved children nursing at milk-filled breasts.
Succored fledglings, we rise for midnight flight,
Our vision on the new horizon within sight.

Rising in the warmth of destiny's embrace,
Those ancient, weathered trails our footsteps trace.
Under announcements of sunlight inherited from dawn,
From the ashes of our yesterdays, a flame is born.
Sharing this journey along the stars and beyond,
Promises of protection, never to abscond.
Meeting as creation's infernos rage.
Beholding the turning of tomorrow's page.
In the fury of the moment, under eternity's gaze,
Sharing a fall into these endless days.
Replacing the fear with clarity of mind -
This dream comforts the memories we left behind.

This is a great poem. It's so descriptive and...well...poetic. Every word in every line is loaded with meaning and metaphors that really helps to get across the picture and the message of the poem and the feeling that is behind it.

 Definately one of the best I've seen.

I have read this several times and derive a new meaning with each read. The best for me is...rising to honor a new day with new challenges and a new beginning. I enjoy a piece that allows me to take my own road through it. jp

That 10th line kind of throws me, but I must say the write is full of imagery.  You two have done a good job together. 
Comment By: FreeChuck on August 18, 2006 04:45:15 PM Report

I like it… it reminds me of someone waking up and screwing their wife in the middle of the night… she probably slept through it… and that’s okay because so did he… very good to both of you.

Comment By: FreeAngel on August 16, 2006 05:20:43 PM Report
Brilliant write you two. Well done amazing

Love Angelxx

When two things collide, there can only be a few outcomes...near perfection and limitless talent. The others, well, we won't bother discussing them...magnificent! BB.

Well, fortunately, I still have my breath..:O) Beautiful images and feeling, you two. It seems surrealistic to me. I won't pretend all the lines hang together for me in any logical order,but that may not be the intent. I get the impression a a sort of spiritual rebirth and the beginning of a vast journey. Rising to Honor blows right over my head, but many things do..:O)..yereverscratchinhisheadfurball

Beautiful, leaves me breathless, following the development and all the delight here. That last stanza seems so, so over the top. There's inspiration here, what a pair! Rich

Jolen, Jolen, Jolen, what am I going to do with you? I didn't touch your words, just followed your lead. If they are beautiful, which they are, then it is all you, flower, all you.
Comment By: PremiumGlata on August 11, 2006 08:31:25 AM Report
The two of you write seamlessly together! I couldn't tell where one stopped and the other began, and that's how I love it (smiles)!


Awesome work, Jolen and James...What true poetry is all about...



Comment By: FreeAdri on August 11, 2006 08:00:27 AM Report

Oh my J, and James...  WOW...  This is breathless stuff!  This is poetry!  This is BEAUTIFUL!!  I love it.  You two together make the most wonderful poetry...  Again, I can see elements of you my J, and elements of James in this, and it compliments each other wonderfully!!  My dear, this is not a collaborative effort between you and James, this is magic!!  This is a Leonardo da Vinci panting!!!  This is brilliant you two!!  I love it!
