Pause, just a moment
For that junction, of true
Knowing, what you see
Is that moment, for you

Take, a shallow breath
And closely listen, to me
As my words, are the question
That tells me, what you see

Hark, my cold words
Within the symbols, I write
Where that sliver, of a mind
Becomes the shadow, of light

The concepts, that I see
And the visions, I show
Are still, not quite here
And neither real, nor unknown.

Because we could not stop to die
Death did not stop for me;
The stars hold true a measured cloak
Of pure passivity.

We slowly wake, and see a truth
That makes a stark reveal;
That time and prescience cannot hide
Our raw, mortality.

Starscape, fireflies
Bursting, to fight
Reaps, a core chaos
While burning, their night.

A complex, interaction
Explodes and upheaves
By embedding,
An abstraction
In an h-Alpha,

For sulphur atoms
Of blue, then green
Announce their present
Nighttime stream
While skyscape mansions
Forever dream
Of a silence, shouted
By a sight, extreme.

Sequenced, continued spectrals
Evolves, a convective white hue

Degenerating its carbon
Core matter,

To reflect –
Its type magnitude

A hammer on the skyscape

With quark explosions flashing
An endless surprise

As sheets of woven color
Pierce the black
Shattering the white

Becoming shards of destiny
Raining –
From a nowhere
Relentless now.

Somehow, color the night comes
and rises dark and calm

I can see, a sight – a floating white
in the amber, of a past respond

With flowing motion, back, behind
on an angle, its purpose bond

Oh, to see it, trailing away
towards the great, unfathomable, beyond.

Differing orders
Of multiplicity scales
Leads to systematic shifts
Within a transverse –
Of trails.

Unexpectedly, symmetrical
And unusually, complete
An outflow,
Beams syntactical
As its symbiots –
