Entrance opening light sensation
Unquelled hunger enters lasting visitation
Dream-vision long ago I know
Frustration, will you where the water wisps

One enters, hunger and the flint is bore
Beyond encumbered lasting vision
Trailing star-lit sky, below the curtain
Exit where you came before

No knowledge necessary but the prior
Incandescent glow of long ago
One cannot even find the mirror
Looks as though those days are gone

Below the curtain lasting exit
Call all that care to know
Gather resonance, astounding vision
Sight musters synergy with sound

A touch but not so much as an inkling
Destitute decadence made whole again
To grasp the essence thought-brink
Closing, haze of vision long ago
