echoes in time

Gilgamesh

in drifting desert sand
dunes have rippled
for eternity
questions carved
in stone
as sunbeams
of gods
among us

rainforests hide
the scars
terrible sacrifice
in lunar shadows
greyed monsters
took maidens forsaken
giving up
their hearts

shadows of time
skyfalls and floods
revolts and circles
leave mysteries
beyond our sight
intuition supposes
where we’ve been
forevermore again
