Mortal Shadows

A joyful light is lit

Each time

Life lends time –

To mortal shadows

Darkness weeps when

Death collects the debt…



Take Me

Take me to some place

We can spend spent days again –

Let us up upon an astral wind

Tacking toward certain souce –

And be led to nights not ours –

Set our sights upon

Celestial towers of tyrian purple  

Burning bright and brighter still…  

No Expanse Crossed

The apocalyptic light cast
Over the sailors grave
By the perpetual burning orb
Lashes light and dark about
Like the great expanse that sinks
Proud men and their ship’s prowess-
Never to be seen or sought
Again by man-
After the waves dissipate
Replaced by black-
Tinged with white
