Elders

A transient pause on
sacred earth,
I offer homage
before my long sought
passage through the
 
mists of clarity.
 
Cicada chorus tactfully
distracts me, while
sapphirine vapors infuse
my pores with
 
a loon’s wail,
 
‘til undreamt voices​
have pierced my
consciousness—sentinel
trees whispering
asymmetric ciphers into
poetic musings
deducing my worthiness
to be accorded audience with
the Tenfold Elders who
 
eternally beckon me.
