Death in Life – Sun in Gemini


I had not thought to think on death

Until the line of light grew thin

Until the narrow, fragile band

Was all there was of what had been


There was a time I had the Earth

Where ‘now’ embraced potential

Where energy flowed free and fast

My will the blueprint elemental


Until the bog and fog grew thick

And weeds, untilled, grew mighty

But in what soil did darkness toil

That closed horizon’s bounty?


To find my gaze was in the dirt

The crop and maze of liars

But shock propels and dark dispels

When boundless sky my eye aspires
