Mingled mist, mind.
Loosed vision, an impulse of the eye
strains to see the lifting dawn,
the shimmering dance of sunrise.
Surrounding sound peals the senses,
I whirl and stretch to stroke the horizon,
the great broad sky beyond my reach,
I dip one toe and the ocean swallows me entire.
Undeniable, ineffable world outside my world.
