Persistence of Masks

By Fujimi


From the waves that are still rolling in foam
Rolling fame fast as the film burns inside
Nature's task not yet bright against Rome
Roamers who measure the sky and confide
Confide in mountains above the ocean
East sun guides fish back through the unexplored
The unexplored quiet of explosion
Rattling ghost's lost of love and life, implored
Exerted at the loss, the persistence
Persistence of shadows with rust edges
Glowing the lighthouse to point home in chance
Chance to encounter eternal ledges
Ledges to jump down, wind leading the one
The one to where the circle of masks sung
