clouds

20150623_163828

spring time. the temple shrouded in moss.
the torii gate is slightly above ground level.
someone has tripped over the elevation.
but nothing more.

summer time. the temple is in bits.
the elevation is now a column that touches the clouds.
moss grows thick on its ridge lines.
no one trips over it anymore.

autumn time. the temple is coming back together.
things that look like arms. something like a head.
with a horn. four eyes. two mouths.
fears hidden amongst the maple leaves, swirling, and swirling.

winter time. the temple stands in fresh snow.
slabs fall, and fall. red grey flesh meets the open air.
eyes light up. it’s breath unfurls, and unfurls.
everyone watches in wonder burdened with terror.

massive hands ruffle through the clouds. again, and again.
and that’s all it does. plays with the clouds. rolls them up.
and out again. all night long.
everyone watches. all night long.

thing things 006

the rains coming down. coming down in sheets.
the last light of the village fades away.
ahead lies the plain, and nothing more.
there’s no horizon now. sank into night black.
noises abound. roars, mewls and cries from a netherworld.
titanic beings roam freely, scraping the heavens edge.
the clouds waver slightly, the star rivers still flow.
covered only by the guise of anonymity, i walk onwards.

the darkness still has not lifted. the deluge yet to break.
displaced this from time, this place, has no concern for my presence.
on metal hides, fragments of starlight splatter.
movement quickens. necessary to avoid the falling slabs of skin.
great clouds fade in ashen fire. great forests sink into silence vast.
great rivers cease churning. great mountains shake, and shaken.
heaven rending roar turns my head. the old village gone.
there is nothing, nothing but a great white light. sweeping. ascending.

the great wave of white light now covers the land
the sky now rended into a great white swirl.
arced, and arcing. wings of light no longer suffer under armour.
last remnants of the clouds brushed aside by arms of light.
star river exposed by the maw with ten thousand teeth.
the world now breaking into layers
pulled skyward with each flap of those great wings.
i sit, and watch. all of it unfurling in a bizarre silence.

mountains and forests splintered, and splintering,
stretch heaven high in a grand whirling spiral
arcing through a sky reduced to tatters and rags.
strains of the village hurtle past slabs of the ground below
which has taken leave of the bedrock. white light ever brighter.
i see the being of light flying in the space between stars
remnants of the world splayed in its wake.
and then it all goes black. it all goes black.

the ground comes free from the bedrock
the white light recedes, and recedes,

star river shines bright over a ruin of a world.
i must push on. for there are many things to see.

ground (2)

mountains and forests splintered, and splintering,
stretch heaven high in a grand whirling spiral
arcing through a sky reduced to tatters and rags.
the ground comes free from the bedrock
the white light recedes, and recedes,

good stuff.
