Invocation

primordial ribbons of infinity
pass from the point solitaire
of boundless mass
where once shades of twilight
snuggled within
that tiny elemental bomb
to an explosive kiss
hurled cross time un-ending
through space vast
eternal distance swelling
between shades of twilight
resounding harmonics
brought us once again
into a twilight kiss
brought us once again

until resounding harmonics
between shades of twilight
eternal distance swelling
through space vast
hurled cross time un-ending
to an explosive kiss
that tiny elemental bomb
snuggled within
where once shades of twilight
of boundless mass
pass from the point solitaire

primordial ribbons of infinity

Author's notes:
I wrote that poem a while back about 'soul mates'.

this is a slightly different approach to the notion of soul mates. The conventional mystical paradigm goes something like this;

A soul, which exists seperately from physical bodies, is created and split in two and sent to dwell in a mans body and a woman's body until they meet and fall in love, etc. etc. etc.

Invocation looks at this from the conventional paradigm of a physisist. The universe once existed as a single point. All the matter of the universe -- including the matter that comprises you and I, existed within an extremely dense sphere possibly as small as a pin-head.

It is at this point that physics breaks down. Laws make no sense any more. The universe begins to resemble nothing more than a great thought -- or, as I prefer to think of it -- a song.

Within Invocation the lovers exist within this tiny sphere -- 'the elemental bomb' -- snuggled together, they are nothing more than twilight, until they 'kiss' which is the spark, the passion, that ignites the big bang and ultimately ignites the universe spreading out from infinietly small to infinitely vast.

In the process the lovers are obviously separated, until after eons and eons they are finally configured in a form that comprises the essense of themselves as they existed within the primordial stew, at which time they meet, fall in love, and enjoy another twilight kiss.

Entropy wins however, and the lovers cannot remain configured (they die) and dissolve once again into atoms and energy scattered across a cosmos that now is contracting to the big crunch -- the point in time when all matter will reconvene at a single point -- when they will again re-unite, kiss, and the process begins again.


Now... the topic question is... do I believe there is one for each??? A unique one???

I don't know, I think at different points in my life I've loved uniquely... that is -- I loved persons in the way I knew how and was capable at that point in time. Because I loved them I've learned a great deal about how to love someone, and may be able to love in a way, to a greater extent and depth than I would have otherwise.

Because I've lost them to the universe, I've learned not to let human weakness separate me from love.... and I do not preclude the possibility that a person can love or be 'in love' with more than one person.

Problematic Disposition of Soul Mates
by Night Hawke


in a finite universe

'Love is proximity'
she'd say
nails stroking over
taught skin teasing
waiting
for life to flow back

self-pleased at her faculty
for draining it
she smiled petite kisses
across his chest

'Soul mates --
no such thing'
the student of sociology
rendered the notion
obsolete
the heart is
merely victim of
geography

'If I hadn't known you
since I was born --
if we hadn't lived
close enough to
Fall -- we'd never
have loved like
this'
she whispered nose buried
in his neck

Looking back
he thinks about it
and supposes she was
right:
--if there was a kind God
who made
Soul Mates
he certainly would
put them
where they could
find each other

--eh?

for Pantera -- forever

If I do not move -- does time pass?
by Night Hawke


At history's end shines brightly,
That omni-infinite star,
The Alpha and Omega,
So far away so far,
But near, it strikes each motion,
Hurling shadows to the past,
With rays of tempo starkly,
Across the mindscape vast.

If no one sees me?
Or perceives me?
Doth this shadow fade,
From history's grasp?
If I am still in silence,
Removed from all repast,
Doth this time wait and wither?
This gnashing moment cast?

I see and I have seen,
The very edges only,
Of the scope of this existence,
And in each minute atom,
Each force weak and strong,
Conserved through time's persistence
Moment by each moment,
Strung like strings of harps,
The very stuff that is us,
That is our minds and hearts,
Circumscribes eternity,
Reverberates with passion,
The fugue of space defines us,
From harmony we're fashioned.

And I still hear you;
Each trill and chord and tremolo played,
Each note and rest and measure,
Each pianissimo and crescendo's fade,
And the tempo of your pleasure,
I hear you.
Ringing.

But if I move not,
Does time pass?

sometimes it still seems like yesterday

I had read the first 2 before... but not the 3rd, until now... as always, very vivid, wonderful writing!

i've always had a hard time even finding solemates for my socks... hehe.... so, just the thought of all this, makes my mind fly  in different directions.. and you may be right! i may be crazy... but..

y'know what? you're awesome!  

~ all you can really ever expect out of life is a good apology and some decent poetry ~
