A brightening edge folds itself –

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

An ancient spark,
Of burning night.

Defined by light
A sense, defined
A spectacular vision
Of a form –
Of mind.

Remnent shine
Spans a mosaic
Wraithlike spine.

Just catch a comet, by its tail
Come back steppin
Like the wind, on a sail

Get back home, to a you, detail
And don’t you run off
Your destiny trail.

The development, of life
In its gravity, refrain
Releases from a mother
Its chaotic, rocks of rain.

Loops of plasma
Splashing anger
Stretching chaos
Signaling change
Spewing hatred
Suffering violence
Silencing screams
Singing of rage

Shoves,
The darkness
From its spacetime,
Cage.

Edge-on visions
And extended flare blues
Conduct a symphony of prisms
Inside –
Their narrow band views.

Light, minuets of magic
Through the heart
Of our thoughts
In time

Whispers, its spiraling skyscapes
Through the soul
Of our minds
Paradigm.
