Sands fly over dunes
Dry memory's desert ocean
Naked sky turns bright
Flashes and fixtures of starlight

Narrative paintbrush dabs canvas
Contrasting color friction fire
Artwork temporality may frustrate
After artist brilliance bursts forth

Is uncertainty a function of time?
Even light fears its destination
Far removed from warm origin
Terrified of splitting into joyful rainbow

Leap into the wind to take off
Breeze at the back to speed up
Sand, sea, snow, or skewering rocks
Landing inevitably unknown
