Discovery of Distant Memories

Twas something fond that found purchase

Colliding thoughts, perhaps the weave of a dream

Distant memories now serve to encapsulate the visions

Sensory equivalence, dividing in combination

Collecting and projecting both vast and diminutive

Silence persuades the meditation of recollection,

Only upon surrender of the present, does one find past

Those exotic scents, wild spiciness wrapped in a thick fur

And on the wind rode the mystic sounds of forgotten worlds

Turbulent clouds moving as if lost in the warping of time

The weight of humidity blanketing the skins of the able

Moist complexities of emerging life, light, and joy

Luminescence cautiously streaming through the dampness

Numerous tiny shards weaving magic upon the tendrils

Endlessness of the cool evening breeze rustling lush greenery

Tranquility persisting, and yet beneath a grand discovery

Neither concealed in the dark soils nor the burning sands

Found not within the complexities of mountainside erosions

Nay, none slip below the silent pools of unpretentiousness

While the high towering canopy of shade reveals no agenda

Beneath a discovery lies, one the surface cannot hide

Without physical construct, creation holds no substance

For truths, even those hidden, take residence within the heart

True, too, many give way to seek the pleasure of the soul

False beauty continues to beckon those of rapid judgement

Lost they become, engaged it’s avenue, long and endless

Often the diversionary cloak of camouflaged deception

Yet truth finds reality in the wings of flight, the eyes in darkness

Echoes of momentary regret and those of redemption

Eyes seek the depths of the pitched verses, vibrato and rich

Resonance of the thousands of voices, clarity unbounded

As if seeing can be listened, and discovery bowing to form

Hearts birthing the faint recollections of fingertips touching

Breath sharing space, and movements in passing

From within comes the calling, the energy finding strength

Gathering, ever reaching in the directions of forever

Aside, all that which provides mantled deception, tis cast

Until hearts remember, rekindle, and recover the time

Foundations built upon the returning words of discovery

Lifetimes revealed from distant memories, past moments

Reborn through the ages, two hearts forever unforgetting

I write about everything and sometimes nothing at all. I'm fascinated by old things, rusty things, abandoned places, or anywhere that a secret might be unearthed. I'm passionate about history and many of my pieces are anchored in one concept of time or another. I've always been a writer, dating back to my youth, but the last decade has been a time of growth for me. I'm continually pushing the limitations of vocabulary, syntax, and descriptive phrasing.
