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.
