BURNT ORANGE

The sky burns orange.

Winds whip in a frenzy.

Waves rush in.

Birds flee the scene.

Palm trees bow their heads.

The sun retreats.

Say a prayer for us.

RETREAT
A place for our dreams,
An earthly retreat.
Follow my heart’s beat.
Can you feel the heat?
The earth is alive.
Its core is on fire.
Come with me, darling.
I feel your desire.
It’s all too...

RETREAT

A place for our dreams,

An earthly retreat.

Follow my heart’s beat. 

Can you feel the heat?

 

The earth is alive.

Its core is on fire.

Come with me, darling.

I feel your desire.

 

It’s all too soon gone.

The door is closing.

It’s being washed out

By the sea’s hosing.

 

Don’t run from the truth.

Please come back to me.

You can’t turn away.

I know you love me.

THE COVER OF NIGHT

THE COVER OF NIGHT

Night is settling in.
Shadows move in.
A town preparing for the night.
Any icy night.
The sun hides its face.
The moon turns in glee.
Time for it to shine.
Time for it to be king.

The sky turns darker.
The winds become colder.
Ice hangs from the trees.
Frost covers the windows.
All are inside.
All are safe and warm.
From the moon’s games.
Or so they think.
For the moon’s fun is just beginning.
Who will be at its mercy?
Who will be left out in the cold?
Don’t let it be you.

SHOULD I?

Should I?

Or shouldn’t I?

Too many decisions

for a bear.

The weather is turning colder.

Snow is beginning to fall.

Humans are retreating

to their warm homes.

I guess it’s time for me.

Goodbye world.

Goodbye snow.

Time for a long nap.

See you in the spring.
