Pictures of Eternity

Pictures of eternity
cast into a mold of golden form
pockmarked by the sands of time
blown by the winds of change
sprayed and buffeted by the waves crashing
on the shores of consciousness
Solemnly relaying its’ tale
by the detail of its’ scarred surface
Shimmering and glinting like a many-faceted stone
who’s nature is only revealed
when a light is cast upon it


Ode to Bodie

Golden sunshine feathers
a halo in the long light of morning
Deep sighs of long winter nights breathing the rhythm of slumber
An unknown scent carried on a nameless wind
recalling ancestral memories
The beast wakes
