Outbursts of brightness
Inwardly, seen
Processed and increased
Into a strong –
Flowing seam.

I must look up into the breach again,
To the wondrous sight in the sky,
And ask that I do understand
Of a star, that now wonders its why.
And the breath of color that sing’s its song
The lengths of its light shaking,
Through the shaded mist of history’s face,
The present, of its dawn, breaking.

Seething stars through bloodshot eyes
In silent scenes of death
Races, violently, burning
For a never want of rest

Gaming, future, systems
Like a treasure found for me
I realize that returning
Is a spot I cannot see

I mention, saying, never, known
In a heart that doesn’t exist
As destiny leans on through
And puts its end to this.

Phased deep, ejectica
Of a glowing, dark mass
Illuminates, it’s infrared
Winding –
Phased gas.

The crashing
Of color
In a crinkle
Sublime –

Makes the wish
Of another
A pure sprinkle,
Of time.

A reflection of how
A deflection of thought
A motion of now –
For the path –
That we’ve sought.

Alone, in our fear –
Of its subtle dark,
Strike

We see, in our selves –
A diffraction starved,
Spike.

Framed, understandings
Within a complex –
Of fate

Returns, a mosaic
Of its unchecked –
True state.

Telescopic, snap fields
Incandescent, in shape
Recaptured, as a vision
Of a flared –
Anchored scape.

Intimate Now

Within my memory
Flashed from birth,
I feel the complexity
Of the vastness –

Both inner and outer,
Intricate and simple,
Chaos coupled to clarity
In a memorized meaning – of the now.
