We Are As Clouds

We are as brief as clouds

Adrift and deeply wounded

We shed cold tears upon the surface of ancient rock

Carving ravines into the face of the Earth with our lament

To then vanish like smoke, tumbling and spiraling beneath a burning sun

Breathing is Being

Breathe inside this cavernous space beneath the sky
That thin blue veil draped over the Earth
Cloaking a vast vacuity looming deep beyond comprehension

An obsidian glass dome that transcends time itself
Burning with spinning stars embedded in its bosom
Orbiting and colliding and drifting without end

Breathe inside this unceasing awe
This vivid phantasmagoria of light
That dances dressed in vibrant hues
Upon the thin surface of my eyes
