Incubus…

dive into the waters of the murky sky
gather the stars from the bottom of the ocean floor
empty the rivers to run dry
color in oil the flowers drawn in fashion

dream all the nightmares of the night
scatter the scenes in your slumberous sleep

be the knight hero as you snooze back into a trance
at peace with yourself as the soul rests to retire

scribble all the letters in the milky way
far apart they float in senseless drafts of ghosts
clothed in white as you near the gates of the graves
open wide your eyes as you comb your curly ash blond hair…

Your Silhouette…

tall grasses have grown on the silent sands
where I used to run after you
but you made it easy for me to catch you
so we could drop together on the sands

how your laughter drowned the boisterous waves
as it kissed the sparkling shore
then the waves have slid back quickly to the sea
and settled to the ocean floor

we had a quick funny swim
as we hurried up not to lose the sun
but as we took our last and final dip
it was long the setting sun was gone

those were the days of our youthful years
fifty beautiful summers of a happy marriage
and as I leave my sight on this beautiful place
now I’m alone reliving our great golden memories

you went ahead of me
but I felt your soul is here with me
the hands of twilight have grown its wings
your silhouette will bring me to where the angels sing

Cold Night’s Sparks…

You called my name

in the dead of night

Your retreat was like the ocean

splashed but never reached the shore

Your rowdy waves remained

in the deep of the ocean floor

The rebellious breath you took

was an effortless gasp of endurance

Trying the last lap of the chase

scored and secured the lovely round

As we succumbed to the cold night’s sparks

the vision and promises of dawn awaits…
