Ruin

Lifeless long-ago images
of my inner ruin, I
often scrounged through
the pungent dust snatching
at puzzle pieces of
myself—an implied rebuke
for my reckless years and
withheld tears.

I dissolved those memories,
lest they eternally bind me
to a delusive life—I’m now
free of that destiny.

I vanish unnoticed, the ten
voices guiding my pilgrimage,
mining priceless diamonds
from the particle-wave
expanse—aeonian insights
infuse my consciousness with
wordless clarity.

I’ve glared into the eyes of
terror and scorned the
moments of certain death,
with promiscuous winds
I’ve shared my heart, and
I’ve tasted the blue rains of
Anterra Nin.

My home is a forest of
hidden trees, the occasional
scent of gardenia lingers in
spring breath. I nearly had
a visitor once.

“The consciousness of a human being is a completed whole, but also an indispensable and inseparable element of the unified consciousness of the human species. Human consciousness enables the eternal communion with all knowledge present in creation.”
