Giants of the Earth
Watch silently as earthly rumbles deep,
And as the world below drifts off to sleep,
A ghostly peak, refreshed beyond the glare.
Beauty in the vast, unparalleled,
Iridescent on one side of two,
Overcoat, to cast off; overdue,
Tremble underneath where others dwelled.
Tyrants roam, to crumble at their feet,
Crushed, reanimated in the well.
Deepest floors promote above the swell,
To join their brothers in a higher seat.
Rises up to split the world apart,
Illicit in the breaching of His art;
Eventually accepted in His mirth.
Forces, darkened, unable to tame,
Ironically those which born of flame,
Inexorably die among the stars.
