In the attempt to calculate
The date for my sabbatical
I found finding the eigenstate
To fate far too mathematical

My measure of success
Fell ill to decoherence
No pleasure to express
Some planning interference

First my work creativity
Held halfway stable till collapse
Then my trip feasibility
And myself into bed perhaps

Now my superposition
Restlessly resting there like dough Such a classic rendition
Of your favourite Picasso



Empire of winds was inspired by the song of the same name by “Alpine Universe” and partly by the associated documentary trailer. This poem speaks of the primal forces of the Earth which shape existence unseen and how these forces possess a spirit which speaks to the soul, whom craves healing, compassion, and freedom. It may also speak of sailing, channeling the two mediums of the world through a vessel bound with the task of passage, safe guarding of souls, bringing aid and chasing freedom. It speaks of having awe for elements as old as time while being beyond ones control which invite the traveler to journey.
