Listen to the whirlwind,

motion over-ground.

Tingling sensations felt all around.

Thunder-claps on mountains.

An honourable display.

Hearts on fire just for a day.

The truth beckons.

The moment comes and goes.

Unceasing winds lament this passing phase.

Just for a memory, demonic craze torments me.

Shadows in grey dressed for today.

The bird when set free sings cheerfully.

The worm on a wire looks higher and higher.

Now ascending crescendos, waves of light diminuendo.

Answer me, the call of the wild for eternity.
