Joy Sparks of the Gods II

joy-sparks-of-the-gods-ii-1958

 

Neil Ellman

(after the painting by Hans Hofmann)

At the mention of their names

spectral presences, electric,

energy like words like energy

across an arc of time

figures of men and beasts

half-men half-beast

in the shape of gods

walking the skies, hallowed

in the curvature of space

speaking to a universe their own

in a language their own

in sparkling syllables of joy—

  speak their names

and their presence speaks

as guiding stars.
