what came before the sound of silence

Norse words and photos, from winter´s realm.

where I walk, the sound
and light of ancient
old
filters slow

falling
down the swaying pines of
autumn air
and winters grasp,
time
incurred
blunt
transformed

Ingested slow

like a wave
of
evo
-lutionary
strings of
chaos

formed into
chains and choker
the mirrored shapes and cosmic chasms
a cutting gasp
filled with blood and fluid colors
these words speak
in native tounges of old and new
organic matter
unseen felt

just passing through

the fluctuation
then
slow becomes
a set
of present days
and dying worlds
growing beauty
yet to see
the ugliness
of man-made minds and polluted dwellings

But,
here is now
and in this moment
I catch
the worm of ice
and hold it

for a while, standing by
the roadsides manor
until soon

trices come
to
pass us by
they slow
evolve

back into,
something small but completely new
a moment stretched,
lapsed to hold
while sounds cascading
with eons clash, a billion sets
of ruptured wings
from moments
of
eternity

but
long before
this day soon,
once again
slightly more
with gaping jaws
beckon
calls
the burning sun

and so
the snake, it burrows
through

caves of ice, and worlds of snow
leaving tunnels,
for me
to follow forth
the universe

like we
both
became, evolved
straight into
the changing
seed
and cells
transforming,
like a river
flowing wild
beneath your skin
unseen,

we swim and run, chase and climb

the
florals found
across the creek
like a bed
all
muddy wet

we turn our backs
close it off
the dying sounds
of all things man

man-made human
this world die, while
we walk, straight into
tomorrows wild,
through snow and ice

our progression
now becomes
a reborn
pack

of wolves and wild
that guides us through
the sound of silence
