Now the vapours start descending,
Wishing nature to be taken-
Slender turn in me awaken!
Though my brow be misty, bracken,
Never words were made or spoken,
I'm a demon to that notion.
As a fever notes a tremble,
Only now will I dissemble,
In a pattern well assembled.
Time is kind in blackened hour,
And within me blooms a tower,
Born of Aegis brilliant flower -
Illuminates a latent power.
Light entangles ancient meaning,
And the duo, mining notions,
Out of space, extracting fusions,
Grown from loss, and waste illusions.
