Born by the sea
the blood within my veins
flow with the tides.
Waves crash inside me
as fate plays out upon
Life’s great stage.
Rain dancing with soil
cleanses Wind-swept dust
from pillars reaching skyward
quenching life’s Sun-blanched thirst.
Gray clouds spiral above
filling with light and sound
the storm’s magic
is no longer silent.
My bones tremble
Ocean’s ebon depths rise
and the shore surrenders to her fury.
Gale-fired swells flood the land
calling to mind from which
all things have come.
Subject only to Time
the course of the storm
allows the ground to again
kiss the air soaking up the light of day.
Perched upon my mountain’s top
Time’s toll on my form evident
each droplet of future’s rain
forecast in the joints
that hold me together.
Like an Old Wizard
without a book of spells
pain’s relief escapes me
Would you deny his ardent touch, if you could?
Has he brought wisdom as well as great pain?
Vanity’s cry in your reflection withstood
Your ignorance washed away with his rain.
Foolishly thinking you can take back your night
Each minute belongs to him and him alone
With the same voice he turned your hair pure white
His hold is deep-reaching into the bone.
When you thought that he couldn’t be watching
Closing your eyes, you feel his grip release
Slipping into a place no clocks are ticking
His reign upon your life will never cease.
Hate him for keeping you within his shroud
The Reaper’s touch, you will not disallow.
Mankind walks upon a very thin line Each but a tiny thread in the great fabric of time Twisting and turning, weaving as they go Always moving, sometimes fast, other times slow.
The past and future are connected by the now That is the only absolute that time will allow Variables make up the rest of the space, Affording individuals a unique freedom of pace.
Each of our threads’ tethers one day shall fray, From time’s great continuum, they fall away, Unable to stay in the present, the future will not come, As we take life’s last breath, our thread is done.
Our precious love transcends all time and space With no dimensional bounds this love reigns Exposed through universal elements The combustible exhaust of a match A residual image takes its form Caught not in the present past nor future Existing not in the real or unreal A shadow etched in a place far away.
Interdimensionaly often missed Eternally begotten quantum kiss.
