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 –

Deep, outside oceans
Hiding, cowered in their secret caves
Alone, quiet, lurking
Riding –
The darkness, of their waves

Calmly, the frozen present
Glides, along as a time shunned slave
As a vessel of empty
Writhing –
Into an extant chaos, forever, depraved

Interspersed, amongst the sprits
Life, listens, along a spectrum shaved
And prays, for new awareness
Diving –
Into the blackness, of their graves.

Bright and lonely
Yearning for instinct
Brave, volatile
Receiving inputs
In an output led existence
Screaming, for an identity
Within a consciousness
Of attempted being.

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.

Whispering, wishes

Intriguing, silhouettes
Of shadow, pirouettes
Cold themes
By exposing,
Feared dreams
Through the darkness
Of its silent
