I Fell Into the Orb

I Fell Into the Orb
I Fell Into the Orb

I fell into the glass,
a brilliant crystal orb,
a world within a world, apart,
and clarity screamed relentlessly,
so pristine it almost shattered,
and here amid a blur of reality,
truth restored from atrophy,
I saw what happened not
in some egregious plot,
and then so clear of mind
as if woven deep in time,
a prophecy to come,
a reality not yet won,
I saw tomorrow.

In this swirling haze,
where reality did manifest so clear,
my heart could not appear, indifferent,
for truth did sting and death did swing
upon the gallows,
and fire bled into sky,
reds and dark despair abide
this tomorrow, I did not want to see,
yet here within the orb,
a crystal vision,
a dark provision of possibility,
rang like temple bells
amid the smell of burning flesh,
the tender touch of hell.

When fallen back from my crystal state,
I breathed a sigh,
my eyes bruised from parlous sight,
and my stomach knotted,
my heart did ache, allotted
to review what I had seen,
and scream for what time revealed,
death of many, life skewed,
flashing fires and peace refused
within this vision of crystal truth,
the bane of my sentience,
and pray I must the orb did lie,
the truth a warning of human plight,
if peace would not be held of heart,
and love far from sight.

    Tony,

    This is a mysterious poem to me. I find it to have meaning to me because I had a dream that there were two separate worlds. One was a dark, gloomy existence, and yet, its inhabitants did not desire anything more that this dark, gloomy world that they inhabited. In fact, they sat together on a dirty, run-down porch, and chuckled to each other.

    But, I did not like it in this dark, gloomy surrounding, and My heart, and spirit, was unbearably restless in wanting something “more”. Thus, in my desperate yearning, I was transported, in only a second’s time lapse, to a bright, crystal clear place of happiness and joyous peace. Everything in this world was crystal-sharp in colorful brilliance, and pristine purity. I had found my home.

    This is why your poem took me by surprise; it reminded me of my dream.

    You know those Rainbow Gems that shimmer when the sun shines through them? it is that crystal clear, brilliant shimmer, that catches the eye, in which this world was made of, through and through.

    Glad you related Tamara. I practiced as a medium for many years and the use of a crystal ball is a small aspect of foretelling events. Thus the expression of ‘falling into the glass’, which is what it feels like when focused. The visions here are apprehensions about the current political dilemma with North Korea. One can only hope for a peaceful outcome. Take care.

    Your visions are very foreboding, Tony. With all the threats from North Korea it is an apprehensive time indeed. I do not have a crystal ball, but use a black bowl filled with water – I have the same visions you express with such clarity. I pray what we see will not be forthcoming. Very well written piece. Take care. x
