Wonder

Bring me wonder
with inimitable glow
of essence found
in a relentlessly shaking universe

With inimitable glow
wonder extent, full of facts
in a relentlessly shaking universe
to explain the beach and sunset colors

Wonder extent, full of facts
reckon theologies before and after
to explain the beach and sunset colors
lessening climatic inference to a splendorous zenith

Reckon theologies before and after
resolute wonder, full of birds
lessening climatic inference to a splendorous zenith
with camouflage that changes colors in the jungle

Resolute wonder, full of birds
of perfection found
with camouflage that changes colors in the jungle
in remorseless recombining alchemy

Perfection found
in aging skin that changes my form
in remorseless recombining alchemy
belittling redundant transitions for human immortality

Aging skin that changes my form
dogmatic wonder reveals
belittling redundant transitions for human immortality
seeking respite

Dogmatic wonder reveals
continual pulsing neurons
seeking respite
to deny infinite possibility’s continual stagnating angst

Continual pulsing neurons
fortifying wonder
to deny infinite possibility’s continual stagnating angst
for decisive sparks

Fortifying wonder
desquamate intents created from singular ideation
for decisive sparks
not arriving too early or too late

Desquamate intents created from singular ideation
for pneumatic wonder
not arriving too early or too late
with no precise mate not to hate

For pneumatic wonder
explain to the ancestors time’s reposing colorless breath
with no precise mate not to hate
that nags which, when, why, how

Explain to the ancestors time’s reposing colorless breath
show me wonder
that nags which, when, why, how
disparities won and lost

Show me wonder
reducing exclusion from glorious completion
disparities won and lost
in relentlessly dilating chaos

Reducing exclusion from glorious completion
bringing exuberant wonder
in relentlessly dilating chaos
dancing, full of tricks

Bringing exuberant wonder
of essence found
dancing, full of tricks
bring me wonder
