The Sun Also Rises



Props to Papa

Stealthily the sun soars above our heads
In a glorious haze of red and yellow
Stretching its warmth over the horizon
Playing solar games in the mountains
Until her once bright light tires and dims
She courtesy and dips below the surface
Allowing darkness to create mazes and enigmas
The sun does set
Perplexities that plague a generation
Lost in search of awaterbead drop
Of integrity from a world immoral
Decadence and depravity amongst
The promise of reassurance and love
Only to crumble under dark shadows
Of the evil lurking in midnight mists
The hope of liberation rises with light
A sensual bright enriching solar massage
Which breathes life into the elusive dying
Men drink and fight so with the bulls
With delicacy and grace their women
Soothe their angst with enigmatic skill
Allowing the sun to ascend triumphantly
For what profit hath a man of all his labor which he taketh under the sun*
Even as nightfall sets upon a generation lost in it’s own obscurity
The sun also rises


With sincerity she glides up on shore
Her shining bright diamond arrows
Shot across from a maroon Kimono
Bursts brilliance across our vision
Shedding it’s luminosity across a horizon
Opening the portals of our enlightenment
Yes the dependable sun will again set
But the sun also rises
*Ecclesiastics 1:3


Live and Love in Peace

  1. Very well written. You’re one of the best poets I follow on here! And I love how you added that bit from Ecclesiastes it’s my favorite book of the bible. I love how nihilistic yet hopeful it is. And your whole poem really reminds me of the language they used in the Old Testament well done

    1. Thank you so much Shane, that really really means a lot to me.. I sense we both tend to dabble in Nihilism mixed with fantasy as well as reality. I always look forward to your stories as well, a great imagination and presentation. sorry it took so long to respond but a lot of BS going on…peace my good brother
