Dimension

There are places
Which cannot be
Described in words
Not because of
What they are
But because of
What they were

The motion of
The giving hours
Life lived
Upright &
Upside down

Music in the distance
I love those sounds

Reminding us
That energy is
Full of all
That is & was

Before
In the hereafter
Maybe the change
Is all the same
Maybe all the correlations
Will be different
This time around

Do you ever wonder if somewhere someone is wondering what became of their own self from one dimension to another?

Orb

Heads tuning
Themselves
Inquiringly
Towards Jupiter’s
Moons over nightmares

The orb
So beautiful
The satellite
So truthful

With terraform quantifications
From sullen deceptors
We fight onwards in
Idealisms

Upon the formings
Of multicoloured
Pastel dreamscapes

Reflecting burst
Lighting cumulus
Most hopeful orbiter

At last
Molten cold
Breakthrough

Facing

Cloth-wrapped packages

A pleasure to receive

The cloth-wrapped world

This æther

We are of it

I am from it

The gifts of skies

Wrapped in clouds

Mauve

Taupe

Dreams

& reveries

What Saturday

Brings more

Activity

These days

Quarantine

A determinant

Of many things

I don’t resent

I value

The safety we

Build

Wrapping cloth

Masks

Eyes speaking

Faces

A belief

In the future

Of everything

Weekdays we

Make our way

In new ways

Cloth

Paper

Elastic

Life

Art & music

Patience

Cloth-wrapped

Bodies

Eternally

Facing

The possibility

Of making

Anew

Textures of

Things

We weren’t

Expecting
