The Channels of Time

I wandered through searching faces

As the skies opened up in flame

And stars reached back to embrace

What calls us all by name

 

I sat beside the water

To learn to be alone

To come with quiet acceptance

Of what cannot be known

 

I swam through channels of time

That passed with little mark

And watched the illumination

Dancing with the dark

 

I reached my hands on high

To contain this fading night

To study and observe

The way it gives me light

 

It permeates my skin

Because I let it shine

For those still lost; sleeping

I shall give you mine

 

To but increase this vibrancy

Bursting across the skies

It sparks a thought within

And filters through your eyes

 

We part with racing minds

And yet, so little to say

The sound had birthed a silence

And night, then, was day
