Omens of Eternity

Fragments float
in bits and pieces
solitary moments of a life
appearing, disappearing
in the wake of greater waves
that flood the eerie caves
where mermaids dwell

A salamander
crouches on a rock
it slithers to a fro
as motions grow
beyond its comprehension

until a sunbeam finds its way
into the inner caves
of nature's shadowed places
attracting and then magnetizing
particles into a linking pattern
of emotive energy

when all the bits and pieces
finally find a way to see
themselves complete
within a chain of molten
mental focus
as laser-like, the light becomes
a preformed image of the sun
that shines upon it all. . .
