Emeritus of Hope

Love that refuses the requiem of all boundaries
sustaining on the essence of love within itself
Enduring without dreams, hopes or decree
A love that logic replies surely the muse of dreams
Galileo our emeritus of modern hope awoke to seek
You as his audience in the twilight waking of new days
He spoke of a love that fasts laughing at the need to sip
The first taste of Love itself the enduring banquet
A keyleaf he left to remember the conception of love
our waking to be the forging of steel forgetfulness
The meal tasting of life’s acrid caustic and sweet joys
The Love that stood alone on the grounds of offering all
lost in the science of a world that no longer eats truth
Romance bought and sold in books and flickered scenes
The keyleaf still waiting to be turned in those who dare
to believe the lesson of love in the unison of mind and heart

Artist's Description

A musing about the complications of love in a world that strives to give us an ‘easier’ pathway which often becomes complicated.

Galileo a brilliant mind who understood complexities being named the ‘Father of Modern Science’…. seemed to me that he may of been able to give a valuable lesson in the conception of love.
