Amber Spectacles

Behind this fossilizing glass
moments slow then barely pass:

the world's in amber, soaked in gold,
eternal, past historic hold,

so ageless in surreal ways
(above our pendulum of days)

oozing futures lost to time
infusing mindful with sublime

solidified outside of tense
preserving what would end, commence.

Observe rare truths transcending hues,
how spectra shall surpass your views

when eyes might dream beyond their sight
and minds may marvel in new light.
