Harmony by Meshach Harvey

I move like the explosion of a galaxy

I strike like a tidal wave on the sea shore

I focus with the intensity of a beam of light

I respond like an echo shouted fiercely in the wind

My gaze pierces through mountains

I walk like an earthquake, my voice is like thunder

I consume all obstacles in my path In the end I consume even myself.


I move like the implosion of a galaxy

I do not strike, but absorb all force inflicted upon me

I am like quicksand or a vortex in the sea

I am softer than wool, smoother than silk

I swallow but I do not spit out

I am a black hole not even light escapes me

I am more subtle than a feather drifting in the breeze

In the end I absorb even myself.
