shifting mists of maya

Hey Spike,

..and somehow we survive those moments of fear, even if we were not
afraid at the time (or even if we were).




The ground moves beneath my feet.

I reach for the blue sky, grasping at thin air, now I am as one with
the flow. Shifting, changing, the streams of matter carry me down.

I search inside for my equilibrium.

While constricted by doubt and uncertainty, white vistas of blinding
snow flow past my eyes. I am awash in a sea of colors. Dissolving.

Orange flames lick my temples. Wisps of steam coat my flesh. I
search for my equilibrium, but my internal view is blind.

Hopelessly falling, I crash into the gate of my heart.

Time stops. The sun kisses my cheeks and the door opens.
I found my equilibrium.

The ground stands solid beneath my feet.
