Beyond the breakwater, free from piolet
open sea ahead, sign of force to think
truth betrayed now exposed, thoughts
mobilized, left to our interpretations
we need greater insight, wind, waves
filling our minds, absorbing processes
of reasoning, the unknown infrared
on instruments, satellite images help
to chart a safer course, instincts read
the sky, schools of porpoise, objects
aphorisms, symbols that swim as
fractions, permitting us to divine
the whole or to realize its uniqueness
with no other parts, proceeding from
mood to transcendent creation
mirage line of horizon never reached
containing us, becoming its own level
of art, enveloped, aloof from constraints.
