renewed in hues of crystal parity
shed this shell and fallen form’s worn ending
descend in sapphire linn past clarity
fly seraphic vision by transcending
as clouds blow back continuum compressed
carnal coalesce flows free unending
embodiment of essence effervesced
composition slips in breathless dreaming
reflections merely marrow time undressed
constant pools of Light our spirits streaming
