Most Perfect – poem by Paul Vincent Cannon


“To me, every hour of the day and night is an unspeakably perfect miracle.” Walt Whitman

Most Perfect

I pitched this tent some time ago,
it was wherever I went, a home, 
of souling unity or fierce divide,
as life is wont to provoke at whim
it sometimes seems, but today
was that day when all was
smooth creamy vermillion, a 
tangerined exquisite joy and
azure carolling, a hearts carillon 
of songbird treasures, my tent
at once restored unblemished,
the tuning fork as lightning
released, today was that day,
the most perfect day.
