My Bright and Shining Sun

ever do I look upon my rhymes with sad dismay,
for the fire that once gave them light has gone
away that sweet song whose poem ended yesterday
yet still reminding me as I gaze upon this star,
“I will love you forever”, words simple and raw,
round which I spend my lonely days writing bliss,
my heart and center, my bright and shining sun.

Love Wild

my love,you can only see me as the wind,
a mysterious force loud or ghost softened
trees have fallen and the birds have fled
children singing swirling what I’ve said
confusion is air that races passions afar
trying to send fires back to a lonely star
where they belonged but strayed from home
love is urging them back to hearth alone
but I’ve no idea where they’ll finally land
there’s more than a trillion grains of sand
burning hot beyond this stoic moon and sun
cooling when love wild will be together one.
