From depths of darkness
Light filtering through the mist…
Orpheus emerged

Mountain lake mirror
Introspective living force
Home of Narcissus

Alone in the world
knowing he would never fit…
The Elephant Man.

It’s said that angels
with flaming swords stood guarding
Eden’s gate. Now what?

blithe black and blue bloom
delicate bold pretender
uncommon valor

everything floating
spellbinding picturesque dream
we drift in stillness

The darkness threatens
but cannot overpower
the luminous dawn.
