Mindless are we~

Blind-stepping into the

Damp of cosmic moss beneath

Our feet~ This nighting is how we

Are threaded amongst the stars to

 Sing with constellations…How

Mindless are we~ That we

Have become unnoticeable even unto ourselves~ Our

Watermarked passages appear only between the

 Pages~ Here, solitude is the flowering of

 Stillness making love to silence~

Bearing no definition or






Only by senses

To find perfection within the

Abstraction~ A call to consciousness

 Lest we be stillborn into a galaxy of closed

Eyes~ The nature of our divinity is revealed

 By subliminal soul-utterance~ A soundless

Vibrato of bodily music where the notions

Such as coming and going become

~One motion in the same~
