Astral by Oliver Seneca

Crow on Jain Temple India by Roger Camp

in an alien ship

made from the chrome

of the mind

see how the stars

are sprinkled

over colliding clouds

made of emeralds and sapphires

that dance

before a red

ruby sun

in the center

of a far-off galaxy

you can only find

beyond the realms

and dreams

of everything

you ever knew
