Still Failing

 

Gazing upon the line in the sky, he wishes to capture signs

words upon the azure nebulae of forgotten eternity

if only a gentle storm would form in the hours’ heat.

 

Then perhaps in a voice of many echoes he would claim

to the depth of infinite galaxies a final message

in the accents of vanished tales fiery tragedies.

 

Inhaling the hues of his domain recalling a renaissance

with dense blues swarming greens and devilish reds

to create in the sphere a masterpiece of melodious airs.

 

Madly grabbing at ghosts of past aromas swirling

he is a twirling dervish approaching a troublesome trance

as hopes the size of quanta vanish in a cruel tease.

 

He wants to taste the pearls of the heavenly nectar

swallow this concoction of undecipherable signals

running to the invasion of a threatening enemy.

 

Begging for an ultimate prompt he falls to the brazen ground

genuflecting in a humblest prayer captured by deathly silence

never to be revealed the key to her magical riddle.
