Hidden Deep

The artist

must fondle the spark

while avoiding the flame


Never surrendering

to the heat

as light’s wonder calls his name


A flashing

of transcendence

escaping the warden of imprisoned time


Where the gold is buried deep

and hidden

—in mysteries still to mine


(State College Pennsylvania: October, 1977)
