I want to do away
with worry and fear…
letting the sharp salt air
permeate through my lungs
I want to look out
where the sky meets the waves
at the water’s edge
in a brazen, passionate kiss~
a wanton embrace
at its farthest horizon
I want to look up
and be blinded by the brazen sun,
forcing me to close my eyes
and bathe in its warmth
listening to its solitudinous soliloquy
I want to read to my hearts content.
I want to write ~
until my mind becomes a blank canvas..
bleeding gold and silver
onto pristine parchment,
.. and having the golden sun bathe it
as it sets.
I want to paint with the Master Artist along the azure sky,
our brush strokes illuminating the hues
of sunset and twilight,
the reds, oranges, pale pinks and yellows and lilacs;
our hands resting into the deepest blacks in the depth of night
the stars, sparkling like diamonds
I want to be in flight
and chase the sunset
and the sunrise,
and mark the time
by the passing of the two twilights.
