⦿

I had not thought to think on death

Until the line of light grew thin

Until the narrow, fragile band

Was all there was of what had been

⦿

There was a time I had the Earth

Where ‘now’ embraced potential

Where energy flowed free and fast

My will the blueprint elemental

⦿

Until the bog and fog grew thick

And weeds, untilled, grew mighty

But in what soil did darkness toil

That closed horizon’s bounty?

⦿

To find my gaze was in the dirt

The crop and maze of liars

But shock propels and dark dispels

When boundless sky my eye aspires

⦿
