How Do You Know?

How do you know of truth

Passing souls or mated ones

Some bid time, to look, to see

In the gallery of whispering signposts

Dreamland awaiting navigation

Clues fan out and contemplate

Subtlety upon the widened screen

Voices call to bended ears

Prophetic sights of welcoming

Take this time to recognize

As they say, just smell the flowers

Breathe the air of majesty

Find the scene in empty rooms

Some might call them memory

Longing when you say goodnight

Fondness calls in the darkness

The growing list of recollections

Sweet energy, it’s glorious drawing

A gilded coach on tended lanes

With you the single passenger

Eyes attuned to stunning sights

How every curve attention craves

Touching soft, such recollection

Sightless memories find certainty

This calling from an ancient land

Catalogued from eons passed

Source of every premonition

Specters of epiphany

Question still, how do you know

Colliding worlds find gentle quill

Walls will crumble, sightline grows

Sunlight finds the darkest corners

Only joy then found in tears

And only warmth conceived in words

Fingertips have endless motion

Settled hands live to caress

Beating hearts seek synchronism

Flowers opened with butterflies

Widened trunks and spreading leaves

Rest is found near pillowed waves

A gathering of living things

Interwoven, intertwined

Creation from things left behind

Every time true infamy

No barriers but songs to sing

Praises shout from towers tall

And silent times of common things

Conditions speak coincidence

While science yields to possibilities

Time and space and vibration high

Waypoint without compass line

Beacon bright, this indication

Steady pulling countless things

Rapid on their course collision

Hearts complete, a single beat

Every thought on waking mind

Togetherness across the lands

Sharing truth, complete and pure

How do you know? You just do.

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.
