Wind worn glides
Of flowing try
Turning here,
To there, a gleam –
Long since sought
To there, a stream

Sailing empty
Through wondering sky
To subtle jetties,
Of methane air –
Riding through
Till no, till there

Notions of what
Or what may why
Under the cracked,
And deepening pool –
Meandering true
So dark, and cool

A winded wrinkle
Wrankle awry
Under a surface
Of wind swept time –
Spreads, its out
As a ragged, old sign.

Marching through the ridges
Riding down their sides
Directs a retro guidance
Into a port, tact, glide.

The darkness, of white
Tops sheathed, in black bright
Streak –
Through the shadows, to break free
And take flight.

Vapors of dioxide
Released through splice
Reveal –
Their residual
In resplendent, dark ice.

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

Baseline allowances
Shaken,
From the edge
Awaken,
To a destiny
Of a re-imagined, ledge.

Crocking clay formations
Breaking down, awake
Makes –
The chemistry of reason
Into a postulated, lake.

Beyond –
Our belief
In the recess,
Of time

Is a whispered –
Relief
In a shared meaning,
Of mind.

A pinprick
Of wisdom
A faint, unrefined

An emotional, reaction
To a strange something
Undefined.

The West side
Of history
Looks back, to the East
Accumulating, discovery
It seeks –
Its release.
