Reverie: The Shroud


Well-Known Member

The Shroud

Dark umber nearly black a cloud of smoke
Glimpsed at first far off
At the edge of infinite space
Seen occasionally, advancing nearer
Floating breeze-borne wafting growing
Always erasing leaving blank
Memories people thoughts knowledge careers
Changing shape floating, tumbling
A seeming chimera ever closer
Finally seen more clearly
A floating veil diaphanous as thought
Approaching, then embracing then enfolding,
Finally filling all one’s vision leaving its trail
An ultimate all-enveloping impenetrable clarity.
