The spell breaks
dangling chrysalis; abrupt
crash, tangle, adumbration.
Shaken, dazed, awareness stirs.
Anxious to return to slumber,
swift fade of so compelling prophecy.
The world is damp, dingy,
filled with discomforts.
Slipped in, potent phantasms,
dashing bits of myth and whimsy.
allows memory to absorb shock and awe.
Bitter wars, forces of survival,
flagged by colors
transcendent and bright.
