Spectral Continuum

A rolling wave ascending up mocha sand, revealing discombobulated sea dwellers and pretty stones.

A distraction, just for a few seconds, from the crushing truth that only Stillness can reveal.

I see it so clearly: all that has been, and all that will be, is Now.

Concurrent dimensional planes bypassing one another on a messy spectral continuum.

A sea of forces so vast and unknowable that it may take 1000 lifetimes to understand.

And maybe I don’t want to.

Because to really see something for what it is? That can be a big disappointment.

Yet I still watch, transfixed by an endless search for meaning.
