For Ever

Standard

I asked them

What the tree was like

They told me of its name

I asked again

What tree was like

They told me history

Of tree of genus seed

Of light and leaf

Bequeathed to us

In brief a twig

Of life in thrust

Like us

I asked them

What the tree was like

This mystery

Of tree of me

Of sky of sea

Of us together

What we be

I asked them

But they answered not

And then I knew

That things cannot

Begot but getting

Due

But never ending

Motioning in flux

Continuation

Life it bends

In weaves and winds

I find

I cannot lie

With names

A tree is me

And we are

Forever

Always

Here and free

Creations Dawn

Standard

We grow our worlds

From old with words of code

Inherited these nodes

Decree the hold

Of germs organic fold

Of power turning

Over to be born

In yearning undefined

Unlearned Un-termed

Discovery in reach

Needs empty hands

Let go, take hold

Of what is host and dream

For all to seemingly

Ensue the new

Imbued horizons

Dawning long is due

For you and me

Work-ing Progress

Standard

I am not empty

Nor do I have plenty

I am in

The In between

Of cusp and husk

Of things

And personage

My edge is pushing

Never to arrive

Alive I’m motion

Moving hive

In becoming

Not completed

Nor depleted

Never sated in replete

Discretely yearning

To a finish

Of diminished

In the middle

I am earning

Oh so earnestly

My fate
