  • Looking into the curling, spiraling blur of motion and color
    suspended just above a misty sea of gold,
    trying to find a clearing in the illusive, mocking night.

    Images of floating carriages, dancing sea horses and reefed stars,
    that promise to guide us through the dark abyss,
    into the essence of the fray, the promise of a new day.
