Wake and rest your look, long and unthinking at the moments before you remember all the things that rush to confuse and deter you. That creeps forth like a rain over the ocean and obscures your pristine skies.

Yield not your strength to strife unarrived.

Nor by any light may find thee out, fold up your sacred absence.

Embrace the silence before sun; the calm that companions the dawn.
