VELLUM
by Sylvia Maltzman

a dream unfolds in the warm dark
a rosebud waking to the covenant of dawn


a heartbeat ignites within your womb
the place where sandcastles ripen
into palaces of light


a tiny dancer swirls through the pure sequestered waters
swaying in tune
to the caresses of the tiles against your own artistic feet


as yet a small hieroglyph
the cuneiform seed
of a codex ancient and eternally new
carefully illuminated and patiently waiting to be read

Sylvia Maltzman has been writing poetry, short stories, articles and skits since she was 16. Trained as an educator, Sylvia has a fervent desire to bring the Scriptures to life for everyone.
