Coated in Time

A layer of life lies
between earth and sky
like a boundary.

Not earth. Not sky.

But what was once
sky is now earth.
What was once earth
is now flesh and bone.

The universe is an illusion
Tao creates with time.

Mystique of Time

This skin-tight wrapper
Sheds miniscule flakes of ash
As easily as
A lizard dragging itself
Over hot, polished boulders.
