Dusk murmurations
Like a ballet in the sky
Whirling evening swirls
Ordered by some hidden sign
Steeling for the long flight home

Beware the lure
The luminescent wonder
Bobbing in the deep
Drawing you nearer

For who life was so certain
He was a master of disguise
Caught Mecca by surprise

Spreading through the world

With slow, subtle effects.

Find out.
