Recalled, This Moment

burning
sapphire moons
reflect the oceans

lost
to wept erosion

born
not witnessed

heaven’s happenstance
reduced to cinders

sinned

a godless earth
to nigh be torn asunder

placid pools
rapt
stripped eternal
hollow scenes
denied serenity

come then
mistral asterism
streak ephemeral
floods flashing

pray
submerge this surface
like a curse
of thought impearled

a prelude
to lunar requite

through inquest
strewed long
traced horizon

us
in umbral undulation
seeping hexagonal taper

petals once pressed
now paradoxical

a peripatetic lexicon
still lingers
in papyrus

spurring pulse

that precious urge

to crash
the inner sanctum
of the ichorous chrysalis

sacred skin
in glyph-wrought confines
spired
amid its muting
moored in chrysoprase seclusion

like silverine escarpment
in holosericeus cradle

pendulously presaging

crux
of impending compromise

this symphony
of decomposing

closure unabiding
