Storms On Fire (+1)

Kurt Philip Behm

A new beginning

begins the end

A different octave

whose voice portends


The circle squares

as angles form

escape your memory

salvation born


A new beginning

first and last

Once you enter

the past is past


All colors exit

as black meets white

gray indifference

to lace the night


A new beginning

storms on fire

 ice is raging

 polar spires


Eight directions

up is down

Buried mantra

—transcendence found


(Dreamsleep: May, 2022)



"This Glorious Quest..."


Better the will to know

—than to know the truth


(Re-reading Don Quixote: May, 2022)

    Knowing the truth will set you free!

    A new beginning is the end of the old beginning. And who knows where it leads.

  • Kurt Philip Behm

    Amen, thanks Fred.
