Twilight Falls

Twilight Falls 

Sunbeams kiss day leaves

shimmering on lush reds, golds and russets

rippling like sun-streaked ocean waves at sunset

final rays of sunshine fade

vanishing into twilight

where celestial bodies sparkle and twinkle

awaiting the grand entrance of the moon

as she positions herself into the plush, black sky

bringing with her a mystical hush

that will silence the earth around her

leaving me alone in the world

to sit on the swing watching,waiting,

pondering inquisitively

in reverential awe

yearning for the first falling star

to leave behind its trail of cosmic dust…

Endless Sky

Endless Sky

she ignited the horizon

ablaze in golden streaks

of promise that spoke

boldly of day’s end

as night snuck in upon us

covering the western skies

in blankets of twinkling stars

prodding us in wise,

ancient native voices.

what took you so long

to discover this spot

where you are?

our eyes shush their voices

as they wander wall to wall

beacons of lights across the

land of endless sky

Star Struck

Star Struck

two lovers set sail

on moonlit seas in search of

that one star that shines

for those who believe that their

love true, is made of star dust…

Star Shower

Star Shower

she had stars in her

eyes, always on YOU, until

you spoke those words that

disintegrated her heart

stars fell crashing to the earth…

Dénouement

Dénouement
In no amount of time
i shall find that you have
become but a small stilled voice
a mere blip in the universe’s chaos,
fading off into some surreal
yet distant sunset
ultimately finding stardust
leaving behind your cosmic trail
where in the continuum of space
you shall set sail
and infinitely be free…
