The Sun On My Face

Bright rays dance through the trees.

Illuminating the air.

Warmth on my face.

Like a warm fire crackling in the hearth,

The Sun provides nature’s blaze.

Skin tuned to the solar energy,

An epidermal photosynthesis energizes me.

The Sun on my face lifts me up.

Bright rays dance through the trees.

Sunlight warms my soul.


Alone in thought,

Like a desert wanderer.

Peace and quiet,

Quiet found in peace.


One among many,

However alone in thought.

Solitary life,

Lonely existence.

Peace comes from others love.

Solitude, while peaceful,

Should only be temporary.

Alone in thought,

But not in life.

Photographers, artists, poets: show us PAST.

Reminded of you, us,

More than I should be.

I can’t escape you.

I want to.

I want you out of my existence.

Only because it is not healthy.

You were in the past.

We were in the past.

Life moves forward,

Things change.


We are not what we used to be.

Not what we are.

The past is history.

Our history,

But our present is different.

The past is gone.
