Out of nowhere, a shrill current zaps a sepia inflicted Today that's stopped in silence,
Causing a subtle flash of awakening
That feels like a glitch that slipped through suspended Eternity.
A moment is born in this hostile Stillness,
As if Time were resuscitated temporarily.
All imprints that were gathered along the expanding axis of Forever glow forth
And Revelation reigns in the short lifetime of that tiny moment.
All the spectral edges come alive together to die with the moment,
Converging at a sudden point of clear whiteness,
Leaving behind an evanescent Quiver
That finds preservation in the silent Stillness that takes over again
Like the memory of one summer evening
Frozen in the blank stare of a last winter.
But in that flickering instant Eternity breathes,
Even if just a stillborn breath
And somewhere a lone Lotus bud blooms bright
In a black pool of sleeping senses.
Dawn seeps through slightly along a distant rim
Forming an elusive horizon,
And Darkness knows in its tarred heart,
It will forever be a defeated tyrant who never loses a battle.
