Nautilus

byCrowSingsOver©

a silent snake
winding and looping
mastering the universe
within my own skin

I change as light through water
ever fluid

intertwining fate
weaving sky and earth

Opening up and
Letting go

curling and doubling
twin spirits carving out a story
old and renewed
deep within your body

Silent orchestrater of your destiny

I am the dancer
playing through your blood
leaving my mark in your eyes
on your skin
flowing through curls of Silver
Gold
and Copper

echoing
hollow
in your voice
in the unoccupied cradle of your ear

Within, there is the swelling of the tide
resonating in minute measure

on my skin all colors shimmer
you trace the perfect curve of my body
I whisper a story softly
a time before you were born

you seem to listen intently
then I fall away

discarded and forgotten

and find myself
once again nestled in warm sand

Above me a galaxy swirls,
mimicking my form
its dazzling clusters of soundless stars
emulating the play of hues
under my sun-bleached skin

Deep within,

I am a spiral
