faces in light

smiles wide where light should be fading

all around the edges, morphing

whispers of the waiting sun

that they threaten to keep hidden away

long nights of veiled reality

painted scarlet and gold and burning

all around me the heatless flame I cannot escape

and the stars are laughing

wicked mirth their song in formless void

the million-eyed god staring down at me

ready with a message I cannot hear

over the music of the stars’ insanity

About to try cross country skiing for the first time. Wish me luck!
