Perceiver – a poem

How far is too far when silence

Rules?

*

Thunderous silence, enforced stillness,

Motion without movement, superbly grown

Mass besides size, dichotomy of storms

Forming super worlds, dream talk

Glimpsed on the far ruby horizon.

*

Did we gaze through difference

Only to find similarities closer

To home than sense common may

Have wanted to allow, to be,

All?

*

Differences, desire, the growth

Of self compares rare to that

Which others think of us, aura

Outside of our selves, defined

By that infernal web, fraught

Fine.
