Beyond Reason. Again.

itself / myself

these bone-weary 
histories are 
beautifully bleak,  

colors fading 
before mine -  
yours now 
epilogue vision. 

progeny passes 
and I become so,  
sitting on legacy of 
crumbled stones.  

piece them together.
don't forsake dreams: 
they are refuge.  
they sustain. 

they color histories 
beyond reason. 
you come to mind, 
defying reason, too.

  1. Whew! Thank God for the color of dreaming to overcome the bleak, the bone-weary and the crumbling.
