This Structure




This Structure


By the edge of water

Flavored divination

Flames attacking

The power of the sun


Magic moon waxing

Making fog mists

Passageways to otherworlds

Burial sites of myths


White stones of ancient times

Transformed and spiraling

Made a path through the sky

rings of fire circling


Arrangements of carvings

Upon the walls, writings

Of prophecies pleading


Brilliant white bowl

The hemisphere unfolds

Ecstatic visions clear

Of minds of mortal souls


What secrets does it hide?

Is there a task required

To unlock the deep

Interpretation inside?

Our Structure


We sat by the edge of water

Savored divination

Saw sun flames attacking

But not us

Soon the magic moon waxed

Then the mist of fog came

Some a passageway to other worlds

But no burial site for us


Some white stones from our ancient lives

Rose transformed and spiraling above us

A future path through the sky

Then rings of fire to light the way


Suddenly an arrangements of carvings

Upon the walls, with writings

Our prophecy, not pleading

Just daring us


A brilliant white bowl appeared

Our hemisphere unfolds

Ecstatic visions appear

One mind one immortal soul


Still a secret to hide?

Still a task required ?

Something still deep ?

Interpretation inside?
