Far across the drench of mountains,
standing by the image and
solitude of the sea across
i see the rising of the sun
above the trees,
I dream beyond my roots
in the shade of branches beneath the brute of the soil.
The path of crystal distance. across my eyes,
i dread a far, searching for
heights to lay my claws upon in the midst of
bending not to circumstances
beneath the sky,
thriving amid the waves and storms across.
the twirling sphere of clouds at the.
distance of the sun.
i face the bruises and scorching of the sun:
enduring the moment of lonely tales beneath
Forgotten by the fantasy and air of pleasure
at the tweak of time and uncertainty.
fly across the bounds
moving around the clouds above the
trees. gathering their wings
to soar across the scars of the weather.
Outside, the glory of the moon across the hidden cast
of the sun, the cold slouch of clouds within
the steam and intensity of an unstable world.
Outside, the strangers comfort, the owners fear and misery over
Outside, the shade of forgotten. feet, the eyes that sold its
shame for the crumbs across the lane.
Outside, never lonely on earth, but deserted across your path.
