Brightman Before The Endnote
by Remé A. Grefalda


How insistently a tendril
How deceptively

You've inched to span
a new domain

Piercing through Alhambra's
centuries of slumber

Awakened now and startled
By an incalescent serenade

How cradle-stilled must all our rages be
To reach a trembling Luminescence

How brittle-bowed our stoic masquerade
Beneath a soaring Agnus Dei

© Remé A. Grefalda
