Efflux of the soul

Efflux of the soul

The embarrassment
of riches

that we call life
the shapelessness

of energy all around us
that we must harness

and transform
into guided growth

and beauty
to draw out purpose

from within the chaos
the passionate celebration

of being and loving
the intimate coalescence

of adamant individualities
the spiritual clarity of art

that rejects all icons
and is the ultimate

act of survival
there is no life

without creation
how else can we

bear to exist
within time

and space
and outwit

the calendar
of doom
