Tower of Ivory

Arising out of mist

darkness swirling 'bout its walls

Strident memories striking fear

fading glances off the pall

soaring higher than the sky

stronger deeper than hell

softer cooler than breathe

sweeter center its well.

A seashell at its base

a sudden wave at its door

a secret blessing within

pouring sound from its core

transparent light raining down

mountains rising from a grave

movement swifter to flight

sound that speaks His name.
