“Bridge to Nowhere” by Stephen E. Cisneros

I continue on my voyage
into the starry sea
to where the phantoms have beaconed me.
As Earth tones twinkle
dark clouds drift and sprinkle
all around up and down
the purple harbor.
The harbor in the stars,
a port for silver bars--
a harbor for aliens in the sky,
across the galaxies where all the angels fly.
A harbor where kings,
spaceships, gods, and demons meet,
Oh, you sweep me off my feet
my darling sweet
but it's wisdom I seek before I sleep.
Filled with enlightenment
a glowing orb swoops down from above,
fill’d with both Heaven and love.
It takes the form of God, Jesus, Buddha--
Noah's raven,
and then a dove.
