It Rises on Star-playgrounds…, by J. W. Cassandra

A lucid light on star-playgrounds leaves word:
The form is an empty shell, its core: Soul whirls.
Your footsteps echoing on star-playgrounds quake:
Empty shells rattle, in a cradle Likeness sways.

Starlight overflows, filling the radiant sea:
Star-life is impaired: change sways softly;
Emptiness swings Likeness hiding in scented petals
Softly: it charms your hiding bed into a cradle.

Emptiness charms your yearning desire into dual:
Turning to your cradle, it sways – your coffin: it guards;
He who can see the core, hiding in it, sees a Likeness,
He who is unworthy sees emptiness, his secrets are guarded.

Sound of empty footsteps in star-playgrounds rises,
Its echo in form-existence is the heartbeat.
