Obsidian,
an eternity of molten black,
worlds of dunes,
constantly crashing and destroying,
softly,
As if only,
in a gentle embrace,
and it calls me,
ever on,
to plunge my eyes beneath its sanctity,
to view the merciless endurance,
of the swirling tides,
which I know to be welcoming,
such are the waters at rest,
mist forming its blanket,
as it awaits dawn.


The author's comments:
I was having a bout of insomnia, and ended up walking next to a lake at around 3 in the morning. It was rather foggy, which made the whole thing seem rather surreal.
