Larger Life

I am alone in the window of my larger life
Behind me the darkness of my once and current years
Narrowing back into the corners of a smaller infinity
Tucked into a recess slightly before the end of memory

One man's vision is a tunnel out of blindness
Fixed upon a larger view when the world expands
Racing away at twelve times the speed of light
Open coffin in a field of green and crimson

Poppies dancing in their colors in a very private meadow
The sound of bagpipes rolling down the mountain
The piper in full regalia framed against the bonny hills
Amazing Grace hums and drones as daylight fades

In the distance I see lightning flash and begin to count
Waiting for the thunder ball that never comes
How many miles away that other world, the one I see
Alone in the window of my larger life?
