(1st line from Rabindranath Tagore)

“Dream of the sudden splendour”
Stumble upon a hidden splendor.

Experience the joy of rupture
Abide by the forbidden splendor.

Shades of evening elongate, inhale
The night-jasmine’s budding splendor.

As the sun sets over the water’s edge,
Waves glimmer in golden splendor.

Stormy Pacific greys the skies,
Misting, thundercloud plum laden splendor.

The dogwoods wait for warmer winds:
They too can ablaze brazen splendor.
