Bedazzle

night sky unfolding
whispers coming from beyond
speaks an oracle
of divine engendering
wise ancient stars bedazzle

Lodestone

lonely sentinels
reach up to the midnight moon
fair face their lodestone
pale, captivating goddess
who hears their nocturnal prayers

Encore

twilight skies slow dance
purple and gold sing color
encore! cries the land
gilded skirts curtsies to plum
waltz the fading horizon

Ablaze

sunflowers raise heads
greet magnificent day’s dawn
sun chases orange clouds
across cerulean sky
set heaven ablaze

Paradise

sun-gilded water
stretches from darkening beach
sand between red toes
taste of salt upon dry lips
night draws drapes on paradise
