Rivers beneath the Sky

Rivers beneath the sky
Spill over the cloudy banks
Crashing into formless rocks
Splashing into space itself

Into that vast void
Flows time into timelessness
Only the now exists

Light streaming simultaneous
Hidden throughout

The undercurrent swells
Rising out of blackness
Breaking through the surface to breathe

Reflecting off cloudy banks
Reflecting off the eye
Reflecting off the mind

Pulled out from under an endless river
That flows gently beneath the sky

Black Box

And this powerful mind
Framed within a black box of our own creation
Reflecting only upon all that exists outside a glass canopy
Never turning that attention inward

Behind the glass

Behind the engine of consciousness
To dwell on the absurdity of a thought
A memory without weight
Pulling ideas through time

To be aware of such mental machinations
To be bewildered at the awe of thinking itself

Gossamer strings vibrating memories into existence
Vibrating me into existence
Out of vacuity
The very idea of self, emerges

All locked behind our weary eyes
Sunk deep into a black box
Of our own creation
