Be the Sunset

No longer satisfied simply watching the sunset
I feel compelled to stretch fiery fingers of light
across the universe
Radiate red and orange brilliance
Glow and shimmer as diamonds
on a watery palette

Be amazing

Be the sunset

A Summer Evening in February

Emerging from this timeless tomb of desperate ironies
I too, feel
intuit
know my perceptions are biased
towards the unreal
I forgot to remember you have to come down slowly
from the isolation of the soul
Can't let go now
Want to bathe in the light
to burn deep scars into my memory
to never lose this

Heart on a String

This morning, I chose life
Summer is gone
with her she has taken my seaside dreams
I stood too long at the shore
in the moonlight
I let the falling stars
find their way into my eyes
and the reflection there was blinding
All I could do was listen
...to the rolling surf as it covered me
...to the song an August breeze played in the highest branches
My heart a kite at the end of a weathered string
And when the string broke.....
All I heard was the laughter of the Gods

Amaze Me

Sometimes you amaze me
You with your quiet strength
wisdom, insights
You inspire and excite me
Draw me into your world
so different, so new
Open my eyes, renew my faith
in myself
in you
in love and honesty and trust
tenderness inciting passion
Elemental yet elusive to me
before you
before us
Never thought my soul could hold so much
that my mind could wrap so tightly around an ideal
The spark, the flame, the muse of my heart
my here and now
Sublime pleasure has freed me
once caged, now soaring

Lover

I scattered your words across the beach tonight
under a three quarter moon
while gentle waves lapped at my toes
and the whole evening seemed to vibrate
The words, you had written urgently
on plain white paper
so filled with emotion
and longing
astounded me; resounded in my soul
The love you spelled out so plainly
I never knew
a feeling so raw, the depth of your heart
And it was then I tore the pages from your notebook
tore and scattered them into the thick, salty August night
sorry I had found them
words to break my heart
those achingly beautiful words
written for another lover

We Will Always Have the Ocean

And she said,
while he stood there
with tomorrow in his suitcase
and yesterday disappearing as vapor on the hot street

'We will always have the ocean'

The trees
with their branches swaying overhead, lied
shedding their leaves like tears at summers end

Warm breezes, carressing and seducing
as we lay in the dark with our secrets
became fickle and turned cold and unforgiving

Even the moon
which bathed us in her cool, white river
betrayed us in the end

But the ocean is our constant-
