Stargazer

..  

*Quandary*  

You can become anything  

I donít know if Iím strong enough  

..  

*Invocation*  

Cho Ku Rei  
-Place the power of the universe here-  

Sei He Ki  
-God and man become one-  

Hon Sha Ze Sho Nen  
-No past, no present, no future-  
-The ascendant in me recognizes the ascendant in you-  

..  

I.  
A fall of fifty five hundred millennia,  

From an abundance of elements was distilled  
One amoebic form  
Which, swelled by a symphony of  
Electrics, the cradle  
Of tidal arms did †
Divide, into two  
Equal, mirrored  
Halves, become separate  
Whole  
By curious  
Linear distinction  
And a lack of  
Visible  
Covalent bonds  

Growing in distinction, these geometrics did  
Eventually disgorge from sea onto  
Shore, river mouths  
Poured, Arboreal limbs offered  
Succor, minerals lay slumbering within  
The soil, awaiting purposeful  
Transmutation  

Limbs rise to rectipetality, struck stones yield  
A startling flame, obsidian yields a brutal  
Edge, tandem effort becomes the sole  
Master of the animal kingdom  

Iron, bronze and steel molded to  
Muscular proportions, greater depths of  
Perception continue to reveal  
Galaxies within minuscule  
Dimensions of forces  
Of expression  
Introspection reveals curious  
Relationships  
Between seemingly  
Disconnected physics, spirit  
And celestial  

We are thrown wide and  
Far in the arms of titans whose  
Names remain beyond the span  
Of their years, building upon their  
Revelations, yearning for ever  
Deeper, ever further  
Discovery  
Yearning to gaze upon the  
Heart of the universe  
And simultaneously  
Hem its borders  

Within every foetus  
The entire history of evolutionary  
Transformation explodes again  
From the primordial quantum into  
This living iteration  

All that has bled and  
Split bone to the quick to yield this  
Incarnation, I honor you  

..  

II.  
The ten weeks of the world,  

I am old  
Grown  
Cracks in my  
Weathered feet of  
Clay  
Which grasp  
Brass  
Rings  
Tethered to  
Yggdrasil  
Who suffers in silent  
Nurturing dignity  
My scrambling ascent  

I am grown  
Long in tooth  
My beard snared  
In tangles  
My aged flesh  
Wrapped  
In tattered unbleached linens  
Which contract and  
Tear  
In the fullness  
Of time  

I am yet  
Vinegar and wine  
In tangential seizures  
Of wroth and sudden  
Squalls  
Of laughter  
Whose moment  
Is but a luminous pinpoint  
Amidst many  
Whose dimensional singularity  
Claims a segment of  
Celestial demesne  
Dearly purchased  

I look heavenward  
To you  
Sister,  
Brother  
Most sacred lover  
Writer  
Reader  
Stargazer  

I am young  
When I choose  
When I love  
And know you  
As myself  

Grind my hips  
For your amusement  
Surprise a wind chilled  
Face with my  
Hot  
Red lips  
Laugh across shoals of  
Baritone  
Tenors, which climb to an  
Often  
Startling  
Apex of  
Fury  

You call me brilliant  
Sound my depths  
With your own  
Call me wise  
Resonating  
With what  
You  
Understand  
You and I  
Are one  

My heart  
Beckons light  
Which reaches back  
To you  
And delights to  
Bend  
Toward me  

..  

III.  
Imprisoned for seventy generations,  

What frequency we hold  
We are  
At the crux of  
Being  
Radiates outward  
Be it  
Decibel of pathos  
Or  
Distillation of ataraxia  
Welcome this organic  
Oscillation  

With that in mind  
We should make every effort  
To be kind  
For we sow  
Our own  
Bounteous  
Garden  
Of well being  

Often, poor behavior is a projection  
Of pain  
Unhappiness  
Fear  
If you behave  
In like fashion  
You are projecting  
A similar  
State  

We are orphans yet  
Newcomers  
In this cosmos  
Imbued with a curious  
Circumspection  
Paying close attention  
To ourselves  
And little else  

Think of others as yourself  
This is compassion  
It is alright  
To walk away  
Hope for awareness  
To arise  

Sister,  
Brother  
Do your best  
Thatís all  
Self judgement will ease  
Warm pelagic  
Sunlit  
Depths  
Sweep  
Outward  
Reaching  
All shores  

Consciousness  
Is the nature of the universe  
Effortless  
Being  

..  

IV.  
Destruction of the descendant branches,  

These earthen roots  
I break  
With steel  
Fired  
Twisted  
To purpose  
Cooled  
Hardened  
Falls  
In rebounding vibrations  
Of impact  
Which break my back  
In return  

A fire burns within  
And within a fire  
I burn  

I am sundered  
And rise again  
In three days  

This sacred  
Oscillation  
And I marvel  
At the silence  
Of the world engines  

Each moment  
Each subsequent  
Footstep  
Is born  
In a klaxon  
Call of  
Livid  
Gorgeous  
Agony  
That causes me  
To remember  

Great mother, in whose  
Sacred hollows  
Is housed a resplendent  
Cornucopia  
Our chord that  
Could never be  
Sundered  
Entwined flames  
Bound by light  

Chill and scent of smoke on the air  
From a bonfire  
Somewhere  
In the vicinity  
Moon slips its luminous  
Face behind the hand of a dark  
Cloud, reemerging  
Just as a racing train  
Sounds  
From its brass throat  

..  

V.  
Visions of Heavens and Hells,  

There is a horizon breached  
In depths of suffering  
Awakening  
Transformative  
Light pours in  
From all dimensions  

Look back on the year  
Prior  
First and foremost  
With an open heart  
What was lost  
Was gained in wisdom  
What was lived and mostly forgotten  
Was etched into the mosaic  
Digging a landscape of runnels that  
Thereafter  
Altered the current  
Adding their unique electrics  
To the overall  
Musics  
Of the orchestra  

Each day that drowned in somnolent  
Darkness  
Bloomed anew in breath  
And fire  

Ghosts that rise in quiet  
Hours to pantomime  
Their fatal injuries  
Are pacified again  
At each cyclic rebirth  
Each dayís work  
Draws idle hands  
To living purpose  

There is no past  
No future  
There is forever  
There is now  

I am here  
With you  

Look back as we are drawn to  
When shadows of the dial fall  
Across our path  
With the height and presence of monoliths  
Jotunn apportioned too great and wondrous strange  
To comprehend  
Remember me,  
My dear Horatio  

We roar for an instant  
Our picayune consternations  
Draw constellations from linear  
Anthropomorphous dimensions  
Assigning catechism to each  
Which, in meaning  
Falls to instant death  
And dissection  

We sift through the cast off  
Skin  
Of each other  
And yet  
Beyond these  
Vertical  
Sentences  
Cleaved by  
Caesura  
It is heart  
That speaks true  

I am here,  
Tender ghost,  
With you  

Throughout,  
We are spent  
As we swim  
In the pellucid froth of  
Sleipnir's omnipresent breath  
And fall still in the thunderous wake  
Of its hooves, only  
To stir anew  

Sleep  
Rise  
From dream to dream  
Our strides carry the  
Substance  
Of our struggles  
Momentary  
As they are  
Our harmonies  
Perpetual  
Our musics  
Alighting  
Voices raised  
In unison  
Inevitably  
Harmonize  

Let us raise our vibrations  

Open hearts  
Eyes  
Hands  
Look back with gratitude for all that was  
Felt  
Grasped  
And known  

For all that we carried  
For all that carried us  

..  

*Apocalypse*  

You can become anything  

I donít know if Iím strong enough  

Become stronger
