Treasure Island

Mark R Slaughter


Epiphany (Adapted for Liquid Rooms by Karsten Fundal)


Out on the blue air
I breathe

Another blue
Inside

Freed

Pausing

Dreamless

Draws up the calm-clear
Terrain

As undertones of mind

Lead…

Ride, wend, find
Ascend
Astride a blend
Of seas
Rain
Aligning land

The inner me
A firmer hand

Aloft
Alone
A scent of
My Realm

(Music)

Lucid eyes roar

Motility swells in waves
And life

From shallow-blue to black

The agonies of time
Appeased

Our shell of gas plays out
In shower-rays
A sense of scale

I coast along the moon

Understand
The being

Seeing me
They all

Follow through

    the life just,
    finishes,
    to start again,
    with adventure,
    blue sky,
    the white moon,
    the yellow sun,
    the green earth,
    to support.. (Report) Reply

To season my fireside with personal talk.--
Of friends, who live within an easy walk,
Or neighbours, daily, weekly, in my sight:
