A poem by Jean Bourque c 1987

Crystal Enlightenment of fantasies forgotten
Previously vanished in a perilous sea
Abandoned by paranoia and calamities
Returning with an urgent vengeance
To awaken the dead, into a new vibrancy,
Acting in haste, no lethargic hesitation,
No reflections, just immediate response,
And the obsession takes it victim,
Into another realm of activity,
Until the bomb has exploded and exhaustion,
Has regained it's control, in the pause of time,
A new voice whispers: balance, balance, balance.

~Jean Bourque~
