Every time I am reminded of his presence,
Expectations of him arise from a distance,
A longing for high angels’ pure essence
when children are awakened out of trance.
He moves from one principality to another
without any sleepy eyes becoming aware
that his coming brings much more than a brother,
whose reflection of man is a gleaming glare.
When he appears at the edge of the shore
his outer shell emits a swirling gleam,
a royal display in full galore
a banner flowing face into a stream.

This poem has previously been published under the title I used as my name in 2008. In 2008 and early 2009, I was published as Jason Ford. In late 2009, I changed my submission name to Jason Constantine Ford on account of the fact that another guy was self published on Lulu as 'Jason Ford'.
Jason Constantine Ford is from Perth in Australia. He works as an employee at a book shop. He has over sixty publications of poetry and fiction in various poetry and literary magazines, ezines and journals from around the world such as the Criterion: an International Journal in English, the Muse: an International Journal of Poetry, Bewildering Stories, the Fowl Feathered Review and Poetry Magazine. The major influences on his style of poetry are William Blake, Edgar Alan Poe and Gerard Manley Hopkins. Jason’s main influences for short stories are Edgar Alan Poe and Phillip K. Dick.
