(unborn spirit)

Glide like an arrow into moonlight flickering the orioles’ ruffled wing

(orioles)

Orioles chanting obsidian prayers conceal the dragon’s stolen egg

(egg)

Narwhals enchant the solemn egg, vines slither into a moaning abyss

(abyss)

Zebras stampede the abyss pursuing drumbeats of a curvilinear root

(root)

Apricots wish upon the pulsing root beseeching Horsemen of the Apocalypse

(Horsemen of the Apocalypse)

Horsemen of the Apocalypse perfumed by oil rising within eyeball-shaped flesh wounds

(oil)

Oil drips into flames shimmering in copper saucers illumining infinity

(infinity)

Lemmings howl dragging the dark matter of infinity

(dark matter)

Dark matter radiates obediently, obsidian and translucently, imprisoning sunshine

(sunshine)

Glide upon footholds of dark matter buried within illumining sunshine, deliver your flickering unborn spirit

(unborn spirit)

A Day in the Life of the Sun, A Moment in the Life of the Sun

GIF Experiments: 21 (Crossing Timelines in the Imagination)

The Augustinian Francesco Petrarch travels backwards into the Dark Ages and witnesses President John Kennedy trying to calm Lyndon Johnson. Kennedy senses the unknown. The King of Naples in 1341 appoints Francesco Petrarch Poet Laureate. His sonnets, some say, become the model for lyrical poetry. He writes a book of imaginary letters to Saint Augustine. He writes about this experience. Kennedy considers the known and the unknown.

No martyr is among ye now
Whom you can call your own
So go on your way accordingly
But know you’re not alone

from I Dreamed I Saw Saint Augustine by Bob Dylan
