My God, Light

All of them, infinite leaves in shimmering green, move and lift and settle with the eastern September wind. And the light, my God the light of the setting sun against shimmering, wavy branched leaves. It sets me beyond language beyond time beyond doubt beyond pain beyond worry and shame, into a bliss of unending fortune.Continue reading “My God, Light”

All things end in two endings

And coming around again in orbit, I see those of my own creation below and behind in the past of my present discontent. And I shake them off, spiraling ever upwards as men sleepwalk themselves ever downwards in apathetic resignation. You have no interest in growing and changing, only preserving what you already have. IContinue reading “All things end in two endings”

Love two steps forward, one back.

The waves crashed from below, in the upside down world at the end of time. I was purchased out of it and a strong arm pulled me to the surface that was the floor. And the feelings of envy, anger, bitterness, and the shame addled memories cycling around the drain, felt ever more alien everContinue reading “Love two steps forward, one back.”

Conjoined Immemorial

Alchemy is the magnetic manipulation of ideas to serve a greater purpose. Greater purposes are a duality: good or evil. This stonegold hatred is growing, pulsing, throbbing in others of me. Let me hope that fifty years from now humanity will not look back in horror at the blindness of a darkened mass hysteria.I’ll seeContinue reading “Conjoined Immemorial”

A storm coming

… And the bird emerged out of a shallow darkness, lit brilliantly by a flashing sun, before dipping below the next shaft of wind. The storm shimmered the spaces in front of me; the air crackled while the breezes of yesterday fell off to the north. Waves of energy, pools of light, my body wasContinue reading “A storm coming”

Rescue us, if you even deign to

The waves foamed white, dazzling and brilliant through an emerging sun.We were made whole again in the brief stillness of spent waves. The water fell back, ready to go again anew.Oh boundless glory, oh Ancient of Days,Oh unending anxiety, presage the end.The Son is eternal, yet sets unceasingly upon furrowed brows.And she is there alwaysContinue reading “Rescue us, if you even deign to”

Time Frozen

Piercing windows,Shattered smells,There is too much glory hereThe greens are dark in front backlit by a brimming and vibrant green redux.Leaves glimmer in the setting lightThey are imbued with an otherworldiness by embers of dying wind. The sun setting in the summer is a time frozen. The light is wild in the western sky andContinue reading “Time Frozen”

In the proper space, time is irrelevant

A little slower, a little grooved out,A little more ready to spend a while in one place,A little more ample opportunity to have the outlines of your hands trace the curves of a sight unseen.To hear the hot breath of a microphone modulated,To smile and not worry for what comes next. Time is stretched outContinue reading “In the proper space, time is irrelevant”

Ignition of Time

We stand in a segment of time that transgresses all other moments. The past is dead and always was. We are alive and think we aren’t. Nostalgia is chain-linked bondage to thoughts remembered. We hope to regain our peace in worlds abandoned, to be safe and secure in tepid stillness. And the sun is settingContinue reading “Ignition of Time”
