How to tell?

A touch of love or a hint of lust
A fleck of pink light in a mote of dust
Think that you can’t but feel that you must
Rattling of thoughts that you can’t see or trust

If you suspect you may have been smote
In need of evidence, where it is wrote
That this is the one to endlessly dote
Or another conquest to boastfully quote

Mind thinks in doubt so how can it tell
Answer in cool depth of soul wishing well
Or cast off a gilt edged nefarious spell
In the spell drop’s heart the answer will tell

Gaze deep at a dew drop longing to find
Revealing reflection calm unquiet mind
Peace that bewilderment is unable to find
That lights up the smile and is blissfully kind

When questions swirl temptation for fright
There is comfort in the magic, infinite light
Soft whisper the query to an Angel tonight
To tell you a dream if you understand right.
