Dance of Shadow and Light

Through shadow dark…
No!
More than dark.
Black waters so cold and hard.
Frozen death.
Mud thick.

Panic as I fall…
Why?
Scream loud silence into void!
Let there be chaos…
…and there was chaos and it was…
me.

So cold these flames that devour light.
Who?
Quark of no charm.
Nano-mote of fallen dust.
Less than naught and nothing more.
Icy tears of fiery isolation.
Burden of beast.
Last first casualty of war of no world.

Cry shrill echoes…
Echo shrill cries.
Nothing.
Last breath.
Hush.
Die…

Turmoil.

Through darkness…Light!
No!
More than light.
Crystal waters so warm and soft.
Molten life.
Gossamer thin.

Laughter as I rise…
Why?
Whisper soft music out of void.
Let there be light…
…and there was light and it was…
Him.

So warm these thoughts that shine in colors never seen.
Who?
Infinity of all blessed charm.
Endless ocean of liquid light.
More than all and nothing less.
Hot tears of love for broken clay.
Burdened for beast.
First last casualty to win the war.

Sing sweet echoes…
Echo sweet song!
Everything!
First breath.
Speak.
Live!!!

Peace.

Breathe.
Laugh.
Dance in music painted in brilliant, living colors…
Ocean of Light.

I AM.
