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

Our Sunken Meadow Serenade

sunken meadow


Hand in hand

We waltzed

Across the midnight sand

Pioneer love

Searching for meaning

On a small coastal land

Laid down our shoreline footprints

Imprinted with fervor

Forever to preserve her

The tracks of mother love

Etched along the shore

We dreamed of our sandcastle

Granular palace of pleasure

Emotional countermeasure

That never stayed

The fortress like our love

Taken out with the tide

Only our memories stayed

The moon softly singing

Our Sunken Meadow Serenade


Seaside full of love

Jellyfish and Horseshoe crabs

Starfish and scally-wags

Sea Gulls and terns

Turtles and sandworms

Loons screaming out in a terrible fright

But when we listen more close

The truth revealed

Aquatic love had filled the night

Like the stray life of the sea

We joined in midnights elation

Making love under the vanilla moon

We could hear the night breeze swoon

With the stars illuminating our trail

We knew we’d be there soon

The rocky shoreline led the way

Our Sunken Meadow Serenade



The thrill of capture

In an ocean of rapture

Under an onyx sky

Love glows silver from the diamond eyes

The sun took to rising

Leaving the world to tend it’s horizon

Together we waded

In the forming morning dew

From the tears of the evening

I gave myself to you

A carpet of shells and stone

Let out a sensual moan

Bodies arched in bold submission

Covetous ambition held us tight

Grasping me tender in the shadow aquatic

Erotically fanatic

We pledged our souls

Piercing my body she whispers her song

A moist tongue rips through my flesh

Like a ravenous wanton blade

Our Sunken Meadow serenade



At sunrise I hear a dream

A world I can no longer hold

And no longer visit

Too many sunrises have passed by

Too many hours that I cried

Like the love no forbidden

I can never go back

Our innocence dissolved

Lost for both of our eternity’s

Swept up in the ocean current

Let not lost love become a deterrent

Even though love came far too quick

And left us far too soon

We shared the moon

Wisps of passion blown across the sand

Once where seaweed footprints glistened

In the glow of the crest

Now a distant dirge

Young love expressed

Natures orchestra whistles her sonata

From a passing regatta

Waves lay down rhythms

As they kiss the shoreline

I close my eyes and fade away

Dreaming of the Utopia we made

Now I have but one song left

As I fall asleep

Wishing pioneer love had stayed

Our Sunken Meadow Serenade




In Praise Of The Sunrise


(Inspired by my favorite Beat Poet)
A wrathful thunder shouted across a peaceful eve
Screaming its warning of a lightless abyss ahead
The brilliant sun god archer draws back its bow
Releasing its bright arrows towards the east
Directly into the heart of a rust colored Kimono
The surreptitious shards of amber energy emerged
Attempting to sneak up upon the quiet shore
Only to be left soaked in somber clouds of destiny
The landscape lay buried in ashen solitude
Arcane darkness glowed from the eyes of death
From out of a skull of ancient days passed by
Trees stood by tall in carnal anticipation
Rainbows shivered in the back of the line
The smoke of anguished laughter rose out of sight
And daytime strutted down the red carpet
Absorbing the cheers of its legion of fans
The bright yellow master glowed white on the paths
Thank you for rising to endow us another day
