<US – by Roy K. Austin


What then of this 
that time would drown,
the holy gaze of bliss 
found fathoms down
and to the God of gaps-
man severed from the past
what heritage to lose
flooded by the ice caps?
As earth gives up her secrets so
then what does anybody know ?

What now of wisdom 
in this  entropic age ?
I’ve heard the sages say 
life often hides the truth
that flies on wings of myth,
for displayed there is the evidence
once hewn from solid rock,
and what a sacred shock 
when prehistoric us is found
sitting in the lotus !
