what is creation
but a loud clap of thunder
followed by silence?

- - -

without enmity,
love is found in the constant
howling of the wolf.

- - -

as for forever,
the concept sends the righteous
running in circles.

- - -

one's mortality
should be an effervescent
joy, never tarnished.

- - -

alone on my island,
thoughts are always flowering
with escaping truth.

- - -

my men are stalwart
soldiers, not fickle as clouds
with souls incomplete.
