The under shell of the tortoise looked like a sunset. Blasts of color: orange, maroon, burnt sienna. I caught them in the garden at sunrise, eating a tomato or chewing into a head of lettuce. They always looked so serious.
I was just a sunburnt boy, with cutoff jeans and a straw hat. I caught toads too. But when they peed on me, I let them go. I loved that land. Ponds and streams, fishing and climbing trees. oh, sweet, green youth.
& as you shade me with relief from scorching rays I bask in your benevolence, For you are a creation of infinite cycles, A manifestation of life itself, An essence of soul's past, A recollection of karmic accounts, My friendly companion.
wander while I ponder wonder when I'm farther out sea, just me, pisces underwater, wonder if I can feel thunder running from each other wonder who can go farther light green, I am a rusty lover underneath, wonder if I can get better
from your eyes, springs forth juniper carefree and warm like waves of summer glittering rays of gold frolic through the blinds highlighting you, every perfect curvature eager, but steady, your lips invade my body with purpose gentle, but sure, your hands explore my entire surface as if I were created solely to satisfy your need for rapture when you enter my world, time stills – thunderous and deliberate yet, like lightning, you electrify my entire being I sigh at the exhilaration, my fingers clutch the sheets beneath me I yearn for them to travel to your favorite place within me
The sun is down It's been down for a while and while she hasn't said outright, we think it might be a power play for a perceived lack of praise
The sun is down We have been discussing ways to raise her spirits without out and out worship (which would set an unhelpful precedent) And so we start with a song A homage, thanking her A call, asking her to rise and smile And it only takes a child sacrifice once, twice and thrice to coax her back - a small price, and before long she's her old delight and we tell ourselves it's not worship it's just the just payment due based on the new tarrifs for light and heat and the cost of living in this solar energy over dependancy greener economy
Not sure what this about. If you have any ideas, let me know, otherwise I'll chalk it up to whimsy.
