PENETRALIA, by                    
First Line: Blurred formations
Last Line: Of shadow-stirring twilights.
Subject(s): Evening; Shadows; Sunset; Twilight

Blurred formations
Of uncentered thought,
Like slow-coursing clouds
In a moon-flecked night,
Move in my mind.

A faint force
Forever struggles here;
Intimately close
To that inexplicable core
Which, held tight together
By casual life-threads,
Is known to me,
All in all,
As that which is I.

Thus from within myself
Unwinds this mystery,
Drifting unceasingly
Into a sphere of motion.

A strange force
So well attuned to the day-glare
That it slips into strict precision
As it joins the rank and file
Of simple verities.

Then again,
Threading skywards
Toward some wandering procession,
It trails its dream-blown outline
Through the silence
Of shadow-stirring twilights.
