1. FUTURE REMINISCENCE

The mysteries of a hidden past
Precession of the planetary relations
Cosmology, a linear or circular cast?
Restitution of a genuine consciousness
Return to the haven of the first and the last

Beware, stare towards the horizon new
Sear, tear the sensation of distant propinquity

Through the secret moments I flew
As one among the very few

The everlasting zero, a glimpse of a million
The forever million, yet a ubiquitous presence
Coronate the path of the Gods, the Elder

I am a remnant of the forever origin
I am the soul of every phantom fallen
I am rising as I am falling, silent as calling

"The precise prelude of the cataclysm"
Apocalyptic visions of the future fall
The aberrant taste of the conceiving past
As a slave of the next moment of presence
The ones among the very few

Restitution - summons the sight
Emancipation - circles in presence
Renunciation - for a new era to enlighten


2. TRAVELLER

Existential matters ignite in circulation
A motion to bend, towards the swift end
Encompassing a visionary plead to defend

Liberation of the five senses, the ego phrase
Metamorphosis of perceptual principles
Platonic illumination of Natures' quincunx
Which hemisphere is mine to hold?

Traveller of the x-scape, through endomorphism of time
Hybrid existence - through spirituality endures the reality
Traveller of the x-scape, through the gravisphere of wisdom
Hyper potency - the predominant endurance through infinity

The iridescence of the solar glimpse
Through the eyes of Himm and Hippo
Just another sole strike of the sun
A stone in the hand or the thought of it?

Traveller of the x-scape, through endomorphism of time
Hybrid existence - through spirituality endures the reality
Traveller of the x-scape, through the gravisphere of wisdom
Hyper potency - the predominant endurance through infinity

Thoughts of a thinker
Infinity of numbers
Numbered thoughts
Thoughts of infinity

"Numbers are the essence of all things and the metaphysical
principle of rational order in the universe" (Pythagoras)

Liberation of the five senses, the ego phrase
Everlasting metamorphosis of perceptual principles


3. ORIGIN

In coherence of the universal clue
The elements served as our dictionary
The vast and the narrow's rendezvous
Where abstraction and the precise momentarily

Shared an equal confounded abode
But soon we entangled ourselves in that maze
Then, nature's stratum began to erode
As our fire burnt soil's face

We suddenly changed our mind's nutrition
To outshine the forces, became our probe
Beauty we turned into perdition (to prove that). - "man is
greater than a microbe"

We're the voice of thunder and image of lightning
It rove inside us since day one
In past times we tamed the frightening
A heritage leaping, from father to son

But the Son became imperial
As soon as he mastered gravity
World's resources were immaterial
For his ennobled colony

His urges with chaos reconciled
Throughout land's and ocean's enormous spectrum
The alliance continues until he defeats the fossilized
History, sealed in a petrified museum

But, we can't transform our origin
Atoms stay atoms forever
The senses of Nature will always win
In this earthly endeavour
From quantum theory to rustic haven
The laws of origin control birth
From feeble fool to strong maven
Everyone inherit the earth


4. SEALED CHAMBERS OF ELECTRICITY

["The human brain is a tyrannical despot" - Louis-Ferdinan Céline (1894-1961)]

From the lonely, grey bricks of inaccessible places to the
Massive stones of a shared foundation.
From a Mental clarity of inverted liberation to the
Intricate web
Forming ever-changing mazes.
Numerically understanding east to west,
Only to snap in a single contraction
Failing to grasp what all should know best as a perfect
Circle of interaction

An electrical chamber of vast capacity,
Storing the pieces gathered by senses,
Pushing through filters to see if it cleanses anything
Leaning on intricacy

A matter of movements in a cul-de-sac
A set of sealed chambers - no compromising
Collecting raw data - defeat or attack
Remembering, storing and schematising

An electrical chamber of vast capacity,
Storing the pieces gathered by senses,
Forcing trough filters to see if it cleanses anything
Leaning on vivacity

The mind's electricity clearing the vanity,
grasping the world through keyholes of sanity
Anything leaning on vivacity
Numbness in speech - not in visualisation - forms
Intricacy's silent coronation

An electrical chamber of vast capacity,
Storing the pieces gathered by senses,
Opening filters so that nothing cleanses all that is leaning
On complexity


5. THE WEIGHT OF WIND

Through every thought
On every surface
Crossing every idea

Lifting, gentle movements
A certain direction
Turning tides, opening skies

Measuring the weight of wind


6. RESONANCE

Thunderous events below the atmosphere
Hibernate within my fissures
Mind has compressed what it lent from the ear
Like a diamond that sings of external pressure
But this zenith is chased by a curse
That time seems cruel to our memory
Expressive bow strokes in the bodily universe
Soon fade into a monotonous symphony

Like solar flares that reach our plexus
Through the cloud chamber's web

So we learnt to forget about essentiality
And deny the primal frequency
But its spirit still exists in me
As my existence is its gree

Like fertility found its mother in fallow
We found our ethics in each other
Organic development was to follow
And intelligence defeated pother

Earthquake: Its stentorian chord
The core's hollow choir
Fields tremble where Alps aboard
The resonance, that even deletes fire


7. RELATE(DIALOGUE)

A flat planet in the centre of the universe
Who punctured us?
Who thrust the needle into our flesh?
Geocentrism came crawling back - licking the needle marks -
"Copernicus was never right", and our world turned as
introvert as our minds

Kepler, Copernicus & Galilei suffocating in the vacuum of
the microcosms
The inside can wait as long as we're preoccupied with
shining the facade

We brought this upon ourselves - the connection breach
We cut the rope, we shut the power down
The line does not reach out any more
Diagonal traded for horizontal - there is no up and down
Gathered, trapped, closed into a linear thought

Kepler, Copernicus & Galilei suffocating in the vacuum of
the microcosms
The inside can wait as long as we're preoccupied with
shining the facade

Somehow we lost the ancient connection.
All perspective eaten by newborn abilities.
Entangled no more? -
Simplicity the order of absent relations
Complexity a distant relative or a strange rumour

Reflective surfaces mirroring skin, cores diminish slowly
and silently
Nourishment torn away, light dimmed to the unrecognizable
Show us your universe and we'll give you our world - we do
not recognize it anyway!


8. CYCLUS

I am soon to reach the pith
My spherical vile so sacred
Engendering the divine fusion
Visions of emerging stars
I am about to stake my stance
Fly above the precluding fence
The cosmic feast I am to gasp
To honour the divine cast

Cyclus - frames the core of the causes
Circle - the way of the forces
Gods, I am here to prevail
End the subsequent existence
The resound of thousand tales
Hear the call, stirring the fall

Reinstate the lurid, lunar existence
The renaissance of primal founders
Stamina, the retrace of revival
Synergy of entire universal courses
Energy of the stellar host

Cyclus - frames the core of the causes
Circle - the way of the forces
Gods, I am here to prevail
End the subsequent existence
The resound of thousand tales
Hear the call, stirring the fall

Gods, I am here to be and become
Combine the rotating sequence
Trig the fall of the presence
Here the call, stirring the fall

I am about to stake my stance
Fly above the precluding fence
The cosmic feast I am to gasp
The honour the divine cast

Gods, I am here to prevail
End the subsequent existence
The resound of thousand tales
Hear the call, stirring the fall
Gods, I am here to be and become
Combine the rotating sequence
Trig the fall of the presence
Here the call, stirring the fall


9. CIRCLED

Thought formed the earth as earth formed the thought
It flew with the wind as the wind always sought the fire of
feat,
The soma of motion,
Producing the sweat that set off the corrosion that made the
flesh turn into earth again

So let the water drink you as Ophelia did -
Beloved daughter and cherished sister
Or worship the earth that Pompeii once hid,
Differing not between vagrant and minister

Take heed to the wind and its soft fingertips and fire's red
thoughts and smouldering lips

So let the water drink you as Ophelia did -
Beloved daughter and cherished sister.
Or worship the earth that Pompeii once hid,
Differing not between vagrant and minister.

Sense - will you show me the way to the matter of radiant
living,
Of having to shatter the fundamentals of intoxicant
thinking?
Opposing the stream , never stirring or blinking,
But firmly preserving Sisyphus' work.

The boulder rolls heavily - is it in vain?
Deducing the truth again and again.
The wind speeds up as the earth turns hard.
The mountain swells up but reaps pure disregard from
mythology,
History and all in between

So let the water drink you as Ophelia did
Beloved daughter and cherished sister
Or worship the earth that Pompeii once hid,
Differing not between vagrant and minister


10. INNER OCEAN HYPOTHESIS

Algae and plankton sporadically rinsed up effectively
Seaweed clad naked continents in green veils
From stardust constructions, cells elusively
Rearranged the scenery in numerous scales

A primitive organism, predecessor of mutations
Along the evolutionary ladder crawled ashore
In water transformed during thousand generations
Then made its debut on the primary action floor

Still its ensemble accumulates our presence
The expression of oceans lurk inside

The building block, water, is our essence
We're like a moving, perpendicular, biological tide
Salt spices blood, sweat and tears
As the bodily recipe's most essential grain
Due to the wave creator, Heart, pulsation rears
As rivers through what anatomy calls veins

And limestone-white structures hold our marrow
As in marine animals that swim free
(But we're) separated, through tiny variations along time's
arrow
Unknown to the fetus in the Amniotic sea
The quintuple man, the five senses division
Add two for the number of world's oceans
And two hidden gene threads may fulfil that vision
Intuition and instinct create the seven faceted motion
Particles that once streamed astray
Now form the basis in our DNA
Salt spices blood, sweat and tears
As the bodily recipe's most essential grain
Due to the wave creator, Heart, pulsation rears
As rivers through what anatomy calls veins


11. QUINTESSENCE

The principles of the quintessential four
Surrounds the inevitable future lore
Untangle the path of a circular cast
The symbiosis of earth, air, water and fire

Soaked by water, a blinding tear
Nothing to see, nothing to flee
Burnt by fire, the future I sear
Everything I'll see, everything I'll be

Raised by earth, womb of all origin
Nothing to seed, nothing to breed
Exhaled by air, puzzle of gaseous spinning
Everything I'll breathe, everything I'll feed

Midst of the parallax, I mirror the illuminations
Fall, rise and further evolution
Midst of the parallax, the maze of illustrations
Fall, rise and fatal conclusion

Soaked by water, a blinding tear
Nothing to see, nothing to flee
Burnt by fire, the future I sear
Everything I'll see, everything I'll be

The principles of the essential four
Strengthen and bond, the core
Tangles the math of a circular cast
The erosion of earth, air, water and fire

Omnifarious - earth
Omnipresence - air
Omnipotence - water
Omnivorous - fire
Ominous for the omniscient

Soaked by water, a blinding tear
Nothing to see, nothing to flee
Burnt by fire, the future I sear
Everything I'll see, everything I'll be

Raised by earth, womb of all origin
Nothing to seed, nothing to breed
Exhaled by air, puzzle of gaseous spinning
Everything I'll breathe, everything I'll feed


12. THE WONDER

Celebration of life in all its forms
The visionary scope of wonders
Confluent and figural scenery
The resilient existence of the past

As a drone of the inevitable progress
The carrier that breach the horizon
I see the winter all summer through
Moments inducing the way and sight

Dark is the astray, as the olden domain
Illumine the wonder new
Spiritual moraine, a phantom brew
The wonder - of the solar/lunar peak

Through the glimpse of the moments
Query presence of celestial wisdom
Mirrors summoning fires igniting
Fires inducing the day and light

I see the winter all summer through
Moments inducing the way and sight
The path I have chosen is the spring of you
A wonder ignites, ahead, towards infinity
Welcome!
