Light Blooms

by Jeffrey T. Bender

Take this time now my child
And learn to find the wild,
Spirit that grows within you.
Let it burst through the seams
And seep into your dreams.
The colors will float
Along the streams in a boat
Rolling gently along
In the folds of a song
That takes you away
To a brighter yesterday
On which the wings of angels play.
In a brilliantly resplendent display.

I was born in 1986 in Mtn. Home, Idaho. I began writing poems at the age of 15, my freshman year of high school, in 2001, with the poem 'Mind Decay'. Mind Decay is a 14 line Shakespearean style sonnet about the capabilities of one mind to alter the world. Some of my poems are love based, but many others are based around grand themes such as revolution, or space exploration, or alternate realities. Much of my poetry is fiction with an underlying message of reality tucked in.
