beyond the reach

of wave and wind,

i witness

black and blue


of disarray.



the limiting factor

in a global

synthesis reaction,

strives to denature

the catalyst

for new life.


i cling

with a tenacious

symbiotic trust,

to the sky-branch,

aspiring to capacities

of unknowing

that crumple

the limitations

of space-time.


rising above

the breakwater

i build strength

to divert

the offshore current,

as the nictitating membrane



hands to the task

within the rotational world

of the time-bound,

i learn.


by lesser currents,

i will not be moved.
