a path moves through hills
wandering slowly no thought
of destination

concealed in shadows
the darkness finds its way home
fog covers all signs

wave captured moonlight
hostage thoughts reflected in
gods shattered sunglasses

moon and cloud above
how distant the heart and soul
exiled from themselves
