Whispered Visions

Through sky bound wind
Following atmospheres guide
As eternity guides between it                                                        

Hollow is the air that feeds
Mysteries carrying dreams
And images holding visions

Immersed in each breath
A mellow solemn place
To freely escape
This plain above

And know
The specks of time

                 Adam C. Sharp
