The Summer is past

The summer is past,

The days of sun is over and gone.

But lights appear on the earth

Against the darkening leaves.

The time of quiet light has come,

When it is you and I who are to scatter

The night sky with hope.

Arise, dear soul and find your place

In the constellation of your generation.

Sound your truth without fear,

For the night is there to help you shine,

Not to ravish your warmth.

Remember, it is only the sun

That turns your steps over to shadows.

You alone are a company of armies

Marching to the beat of a thousand hearts 

That came before you.

Come now, go forth with your gentle light,

Embrace your destiny,

And roses will surely bloom

In your wake. 

I set myself on fire for you

Your arteries seem clogged with the debris of dreams,

The ghosts of your loves are edged into your skin.

I watch your eyes on me; deserted islands sunk into a milky sea,

And I set myself on fire for you …

Flames sputtering, dependably, icy into your veins,

Like an epiphanic drug swimming in your stead.

I convert you to me …

Making you an addict to my dreams.

What days to come?

What days to come will run, will swim,

Will drag me by the hair?

Will flood, will dry, will crash

Into my boundaries?

All I know is that you’ll be there

To cause me pain, to lift my joy,

To take away my grief.

You are time, you are the sea of consciousness,

You are Eternity, you are me.

I am a wing on my own

There are no need for lifejackets or wingmen anymore, 

I am a wing on my own.

A solitary feather flapping on the curb…

But you, oh no, you are not that, 

You are a deep diver soaring above.

But I see you up there, trying to hold your breath, 

To reach even further into me, 

And I worry…

Do you have the stamina to be a lone traveler, 

Or will you fall against my one-feathered chest? 

What then? 

Will one wing be enough

To lift the both of us? 

Waiting in immovable light

There are some who are lost,
some who are searching.
But life
Has a tendency of carrying you.
So you can dive,
Dive into the great unknown
Where you will resurface on a glacier,
Surrounded by beauty in stillness,
Like something unborn
Waiting in immovable light.

You and me were like that once,
Immovable lights waiting in the shadows,
Reaching for that one thing,
The one perfect exit, or entrance,
To life;
Its many joys and sorrows.

We were a moment yawning
Between times, where an absent sun
Let the moon walk in dreams.

We dreamed then, you and I,
Of what was to come, of oceans deep,
While waiting for the crack in Simplicity,
For the moon to figure us out,
And release us.
Two drops of hope
Into the vast cosmic sea.

The other surface of the ocean

You tether your soul
To the heaviest rock,
To the deepest isle
Where your thoughts reach
Into the bottomless pit
Where miles of darkness
Hide the light from your sight.
But if you let me,
I can show you how
To use your soul as an anchor,
Letting it sink into that
Beautiful light on the other surface
Of the ocean.
