412. In the Horizon

Pacific_Sunset_Pismo_Beach_California

Tangerine-seas quench my day-parched soul,

With the hope that maybe tomorrow,

Will find it new and whole.

As the sun descends and light fades out,

I inhale deeply of it’s sweetness,

And expunge any doubt.

For the night is coming…time to sleep,

And dream of new, better tomorrows,

Yet, first I’ll drink and weep,

For the yesterday which burns away…

In the horizon.

124. Hello….Goodbye

tumblr_n3pgclrWtl1s2msiio1_500

Complicated,

Complex spells,

Tangled in life-spring wells;

Intricately,

Confus’ed,

By sharp unexpected swells.

Ensnarled thick,

And raveled,

In inescapable cells.

Muddled daily.

Confounded,

By swift screams of fare-thee-wells.
