twilight of milky sky’s,
after massive stars, in spark
may ever after sadness say farewell
as I depart
for throughout time and fractured space
the epic battles bear me far
I pray to see my masters face
as I depart for yonder bar.

O reflection,
The great purple witch rides this night
Untrusting, through prow or strength
Without safety of flight
For by glance, by wicked snare
Lies the darkend smile, of Rigel’s glare.

I am energies
For the void, not yet formed
Through degenerate emission

We have built a jewel
A monument of color
Facing a blackness, forever tomb

So I call these filaments
A mark of remembrance
Where the unfaithful,

Watch the redHa shine
Broken – into newborn life
In the memory, of death.

A single point of motion
From a helium fusion shield
Is the answer, in a question
From its complex –
Radiant field.

Mythical mysteries
Of confounding,
Dark scales

Strikes through
Its long history
Through compounding, contrails.

Flashes of color
Unplan –
To create

Rebranding their construct
To withstand –
Their new state.

Rivers –

Of swirling air
Envelope our visions
And enrapture our dreams

Evolving –

To be a witness
To moving layers
Of shadow streams.

Energized rims
Of collapsing detail
Re-forms a new boundary
Through its radiated, veil.

A brightening edge folds itself –

From the nothing
Into something
From the darkness
Into light
From the shadow
Into showing

The ancient spark,
Of burning night.
