Creatures of thought
Through infrared sight

Are troubled
And fraught
And burned, through their bright.

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

Raging through the darkness
Through the swaths
Of sharp ringshine

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

A dreamer views –
An endless universe of possibility
Full of mystery and marvel
With pinpoints of opportunity
Dashing by
Dancing, just out of reach
Staring back
At the starlight
Inside of us.

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.

Dueling sparks
And juggling fire
A flame –
Starves the dark
From its pure desire.

Raged with age
A force blown out
A flame –
Flees its stage
When fueled by doubt.

Upon the brink
It cannot feel
A flame –
Cannot think
That it’s really, real.

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

Burst frame precision
Distorted –
By rage
Re-plans its destruction
Through a formation,

A halcyon silver
Shakes the night
A grudging sky
A spirit light

A shadow ghost
A shaking sight
Through darkshine signs
Of unnerving, bright.

Angle right visions
Curve –
Through the night
Sending whispers of color
To conserve –
It’s arc light.
