The black fire

Dark descending,
let’s dive all the way,
’til blackness fades.

Universe conspires,
breaking old grounds,
’til winter cracks.

Letting go,
this fake bright light,
trust the fall.

where shadows’ gone,
at the deepest depth,
the black fire.


Rachmaninov’s melody,
there is no mountainous height,
without an equal depth down below,
rising ocean’s storm surges,
reaching for a red burning star,
’til all breakdown in bursting tears,
fading away … pianissimo.
