Accumulated, mirror errors
Within a variable, device
Calibrates, it’s own re-certainty
A periodicity, of un-precise.

Ridges, of emission
Within a remnant, of fate
Becomes faint,
And elusive,
As a timeless free, gate.

Of shadow, pirouettes

The frame of ghostly light within
Glowing, dark and cold
Sights its lonely, now begin,
Re-balanced, through its fold:

Our found, unnerved, deserted space
From sunken graves reborn
Sounds it’s brazen, silent chase
Through resplendent, scowls of scorn:

Of onward, slight, in downward cross
Unleashed, to fling its fight
Dons it’s shadow, echo loss
To a once, remembered light.

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

Flashes of color
Unplan –
To create

Rebranding their construct
To withstand –
Their new state.

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.

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.
