Light

Illumine shadows cast by altars high
above my doubts’ unquelled yet feeling still
to find within these arches answers try
not once alighting in my dreams until

I drift between the ridges where my mind
creates no image from perceptions’ guilt
o’errun sensations of a voice unkind
descended t’ward minds’ castles’ tow’rs unbuilt

yet casting dark ‘neath suns’ forgiving beam
perceptions’ focus breathes life not into
your trenches satisfied to stay unseen
rebelling ‘gainst thoughts armies sent from you

Electrify through thoughts condemned by flame
afire the soul walks endlessly in vain

(Avi Sato, 2019)
