Clamor's hammer s h a t t e r i n g
abstractions crushing c l a r i t y.
Abruptly rushing: muse eludes
with r e m n a n t s of your reverie
as fervors blur and burst to s h a r d s
and curst disturbance disregards
how sanctity allays a mind.
Disquieted, what you may find
as intimations e v a n e s c e
are sparkless embers blown from blaze
faintly smoldered in this haze
where visions mixed with sumptuous views,
aglow with insights, now diffuse.
Reviving silence might restore
some of what stirred there before.
Perhaps the muse returns, but changed,
with figments, feelings rearranged
diverging from vague memory:
perhaps with what you're meant to see.
