Dark skies

Rolling, rolling
It crashed over the horizon

They listened
But their fear couldn’t silence the thunder

To capture time

He could think of nothing less
Than to give her the world,
So out of words he built the cosmos.

Time through the eyes of the gods

And in a moment
We realized that time didn’t exist
For we had lived something eternal
In this life so ephemeral.

Lashed by the laws of love
Understood only by the moon
And the sun.

I lost my words

On a windswept castle
Perched above a glittering village
A volcanic wind blew through our hair
And smelled of forgotten words

Of a grain of sand
And all of its journeys,
And all of the places it knows.
