He reminded me of family. I don’t know…it could’ve been the New York connection. I just knew that I always understood what he had to say and more importantly, what he wanted to say.
Honoring his evolution, I journeyed with him as his username changed a few times and his poetic style transitioned in leaps and bounds. Oh and then there was the time we collaborated. Concrete Jungle + a quest for serenity, equaled undeniable peace:
WITH CLOSED EYES
I felt the water touching me/exalting me/ purifying deeply clean/also the scent of tangerines/I hear the bee’s buzz right before they sting/and the daffodils tickle my naked feet similar to a hair string/the solar of the sun rays moisturizes my flesh I perspire a gleam/and I hear the salmon swimming underneath the stream/I touch my eyelashes which is connected to my face like a seam/with closed eyes this is what I seen.
Sounds to me like you saw paradise
And felt calm before the storm
Our existence free of anxiety
Scarless bodies void of self harm
Purity intact before violation
Vivid colored dreams
With heightened sensation
A time where safe havens
Were actually safe
Adam & Eve bare but not exposed
An existence where
Peace remained unscathed
I too see better
with my eyes closed

In his own words…
“Peace…I’m FromDust2Dawn and my essence is AgustOfWind! Basically my bio is a…or rather the reason I’m here is to elaborate on just how I came about writing poetry. Actually its been my nature since the mother womb cradle me and the father spoken me into existence to express myself in a form of a written expression; since the days of elementary and my lack to understand certain arithmetics. I humble thyself and converse to the Kings and Queens however you see or perceive yourself. This is who I am”.
