Ghost in the mist

Ghost In The Mist

I am a ghost in the mist,
I descend, hidden, to this…
A world lost in flimsy dreams.

I’m the space between your thoughts,
The secret behind your sight,
That fire which could set you alight,
A yearning, a longing desperate to escape,
To unleash furious patterns of atoms,
To dance, to swirl, to become whirls,
Eddies of neutrons exploding in your mind,
This is the way I seek to become.

I am a ghost in the mist,
I descend, hidden, to this…
A world echoed in past woes.

I’m the journey between your space,
The place beyond your fears,
That majesty, that depth of wonder,
A spiral, an intense beauty delighting,
To unwrap, to live, to reach potential,
To fury, to anger, to surge energy,
Fusions of sparkling matter, wisps of storms,
This is the way I seek to become.

I am a ghost in the mist,
I descend, hidden, to this…
A world reacting to an unknown future.

I’m the wisdom between your conscience,
The knowledge deep in your soul,
That courage of life, unfettered, whole,
To spin galaxies onto their side,
To create gravity, to ground us, to nurture,
Circles of worlds, colliding incandescence,
This is the way I seek to become.

I am a ghost in the mist,
I reveal myself, sometimes, to this…
A world of calm, serene presence.

I’m the purpose between your dramas,
The quiet singing in your heart,
That intention of all that exists,
To flow with this great universe,
To inspire awe, to send us to the stars,
Dream of these moments, expand them,
This is the way I seek to become.

    This reminds me of a Rachel Whiteread exhibition I went to see in London earlier this year. She sculpts the space that isn’t there…
