(born here)

this crazy journey

reckless and thoughtless at times

good times are born here

One More

I sit here, on the eminence

Overlooking the soft rolling grounds

The sun is busy

Playing a game of hide-n-seek

The clouds seem to offer

Plenty of good hiding spots

The wind blows slightly

Enough to throw small whiffs

Of lavender, right at my nose

If I were to die right now

I’d die a happy man

Within the hour

The sun will display

One final burst

An encore for my day

Then slip away, exiting stage left

And leave me, again

It’s predictable

But so very pretty

And, although I’ve seen this show before

It never fails to amaze me

Like the words of a lost lover

I hang on it

And like a promise unfulfilled

I’ll keep coming back, again

Hoping for just one more show

Just one more

Just like this one

Far Off Thoughts

The dog days of summer

Will soon lick the back of your neck

With the sweet sweat of sunshine

While the off-shore breezes throw chills

and moves grains of sand

in tiny swirls

As our great star retires

Replaced by a full moon

And mesmerizing new tides

Pull our thoughts out to sea

And force our thoughts of winter

Back to the secret caves

Of the slick by and by

We will cherish these days

And forget the old

For it’s times like this

We are forced

To only dream of now
