Like failed planets and moons that
have lost their mass, I
too, have fallen
into the sun.
Amplified sunlight to the nth power
re-quires re-calibration, a separate orientation.
We, the dark ones hover
feverishly like moths
drawn to a bulb and
are stunned when
a fresh loaf of light appears,
Who ordered all this…bright-ness?
I poke my stick into
the beach sand,
gather shells around me
and take a picture, justly
At night moonlight trails behind
like slow turtles
chasing my footprints.
out of reach
all of us lying in the darkness
some looking up
to see the stars.

Really lovely . . . A soft contrast to the bare, snowy landscape here in the Northeast. I especially love the image of being 'stunned when a fresh loaf of light appears.'
Mahalo, Deborah. Isn't that how it goes? We are "stunned" when the snow melts, as if it never happened before; as if it doesn't occur, right on time, year after every lucid year…
We are like moths… if moths were ever stunned, ha.. Nice images.. and photos…
Cheers & love, Mike
Happy, healthy, resourceful, intoxicating, funny, funny and funny new year to you, Mike. Because you make me think. And laugh.
Well, my dear, you have landed in a most beautiful spot, it seems! I know you will appreciate each & every day of sunshine while you can ~ please soak up a bit for me.
Hope this year continues to be bright & warm for you!
Heading back into ice and snow Feb. 1 and hopefully, we've soaked up enough to last a while.
Best to you in the new year, wind and rock (love your name)…
