In the cool of a summer night
Sleep finally comes
Oblivion for a few short hours
Too soon the the mind wakes; struggles with life.
Prose wishes to break free
Sentences struggle for completeness.
References and words float on the air
Mind’s eye holds a crystal
Considering its complexity
Turn the thought over
To hold the world in your hand
The scene that follows won’t come –
Struggling for completeness
Struggling for meaning
Struggling for profoundness
Struggling for the heights
The cooling air flows and cools the soul
The mind rests
Yet it struggles with the thought –
The image that wishes to be found
Gaze at the crystal again
See into infinity
See into the power and wisdom
On the wind the voice is heard
but in the mind a glass wall prevents hearing
Mumbled words, a phase starts
“Gaze into the crystal and see … “
Frustration as the words will not flow.
The cool air brings relief
The river lulls the mind to sleep.
Thoughts start and fade to sleep
Sleep comes to revive the weary soul
Sleep gently lays to rest
Sleep lets the thought lay incomplete
Sleep nurtures the imagination
Play the scene again
Gaze into the crystal and what do you see?
Infinity of light
