Outside the Tent

With buoyant impression.

Another change in the night…that falls.

As if, my running through intrepid waters could oppose a stall.

As if, my stumble, minus, a sideways glance could impede…

‘every season, I cannot recall.’

With luxury, near, close at hand.

A chill slaps a splash toward my heavy load.

In the still air…

Time has grown old.

Oh, to relish life…

Less having to be bold.

How far?

I fathom the flames.

Until, they rise no more.

How far the reaches of season?

Until they succumb to folklore.

 

Eclipse

All that you touch
And all that you see
All that you taste
All you feel
And all that you love
And all that you hate
All you distrust
All you save
And all that you give
And all that you deal
And all that you buy
Beg, borrow or steal
And all you create
And all you destroy
And all that you do
And all that you say
And all that you eat
And everyone you meet (everyone you meet)
And all that you slight
And everyone you fight
And all that is now
And all that is gone
And all that’s to come
And everything under the sun is in tune
But the sun is eclipsed by the moon

Pink Floyd – Eclipse Lyrics | MetroLyrics

Burn Lake

As the flame danced with the wind and the embers

Amber rekindled with the forsaken ash

The storm clouds pulled away

and another blue moon felt its shadow cast.

Night time ran into dawn.

Soft petals of raindrops fell upon the newly shaved lawn.

Finally, with the loons echo of goodnight.

Burns lake came up and out of sight.

It is a slippery slope living among the mortals

There is no right

There is no wrong

There is no place to belong.

Yet, late in the evening

Perhaps just before dawn

the symphony of earth angels mime in song.

Yet, late in the afternoon

Just before the sun turns to warm

Out on the lake you can see it…

if you do not look too long.

Out on the lake, it could be said

At any of God’s moments

At any miscues of time

There is an undeniable rhythm with the earth

An indisputable rhyme.
