like water pouring
into a horizontal spout
sucking backwards motion
in a forward beat
pacing across the forest
like the elder's once said it would happen

we see the truth.

the image broken by the past and the present
because there ain't no future
only a thumb thumb thumping
against the now.

blurred moments is all we got
because time keeps on dissolving
the visions we see
a hint into our lives lived
desperately for some hope
a white hope against the dark background of a deep forest.

...uriel, uriel, mygolly mygum, myboy, i am just flooooored with this precious piece...gawd, what a cosmic view, and sooo much more...pleased that i could 'cipher this...it is so heavy it'd make a lead pipe jealous...and the kicker is i got it!...and that's a comment on your heaviness as a writer...a few times i been impressed by something that i wish i'd written and this is ONE...in my heart this is a ringer with every line, each one could nearly stand alone...it's great uriel...peace, chaz

Uriel, Paul's journal has provided me (and others) with plenty of inspiration. Your words give an interpretation to this picture that I wouldn't have seen.
