Burning Silhouettes

In the golden dawn
black birds screech
a faithful warning
Blazing beyond my sight
the sky liquefies
from transcendent dreams
crawling from the flames of despair
 flowing across landscapes
holding on to a silent moon
removed from the grasp
of world-weary beings
In these dreams of gold
the sky drips cobalt
its sorrow thick
from the indifference
of a universe
fallen from faith
Yet still he stands
watching the burnt-orange silhouettes
traverse towards an empty horizon
Searching for hope
detached  from the reality
of a hopeless world.
