A vision clearly inspired by a transcendent moment's view, and a long gaze. Then captured with original wording, as such an experience has a wordlessness, one must search. I love "ebon" had not seen that adjective (of ebony) such a strong descriptive start. Also the "veldt mosaic" (I looked up veldt, and the contrast of dry and watery landscapes overlaid is beautiful. The leap from the scene to the extraordinary (this) versus ordinary experience (conventional) expands the poem to a deep breath even beyond the natural.

This is just beautiful, Roger. How on earth did I manage to miss this? (so much flows through I guess that is why--I can't keep up with it all)Anyway, I am glad you visited my library which in turn, drew me to yours. I am looking forward to reading more. I like what I see so far!
