Vanitas Vanitatum

Spinning, into this void....

Silhouetted glimpses

Of these comets

And shooting stars

Disappearing tales of vapour

Astonishing wonders, they are!


Swishing into the swirls

Of the churning skies

Crashing into the waters

Amid spindrifts....Vanishing light!

Their moment, slowly descending

Beneath the murmuring tide

Columns, of reflectless glass

Silently dancing....

For the very last time

Unto the shores, of forevermore

Forgottens fathoms....their lives!


...."Never again"....
