Creatures of fancy
Preachers of slight
Creep into consciousness
Deep –
Into night.

Rejected emissions
Insure, in the end
That the beginning
Of now-frames
Will return –
To transcend.

Darkening nights around me
Where chill of winter blows
A cold of quick surrounds me
Impeding the thought to go

Its creeping mental picture
Lies bare beneath the snow
A brewing storm descending
That opens – my void below.

Static, deposits
In thin, layered frames
Fold, into colored
Dark flames.

Bright and sharp,
On glittering days
Clean and crisp,
A ghosted haze
Wondrous visions,
Of clouds that run
Marked within –
A shadow sun.

We motion our intentions
We marshal through our minds
We take inferred abstentions
From the things –
We fear to find.

Ejections, of motion
As inflections, of might
Disconnects –
Their intersections
As a reflection –
Of light.

Shadow of Equin

Raging through the darkness
Through the swaths
Of sharp ringshine

The mind re-blends its starkness
And adopts –
Its pure divine.

Like a storm cloud –
On the darkest, day of a days
A shuttering thunder, from deep away
A sharp eruption, from dull decay
A quickening crack, to full astray

Then explosion –
From an anger,
On full display.

Unseen visions
Scream –
Through our past
By a future
Unreal –
And unlashed.

Haze of the Sun >>
