Leviathan in Shallow Waters

Out of void comes consciousness

leviathan in shallow waters

without memory of that dark beyond darkness

save fear of it

A place before even an idea of light existed

nerve ends of chaos in deepest night

made real with hands crawling from the desert

already losing the grip they found

and crumbling away with the sand

Ravage the night and break through

to a choice of oasis in the distance

or darkness at the end of all things

Been reading The Left Hand of Darkness by Ursula K. Le Guin. I doubt I’ll ever be off the sci-fi train.
