a summer day with you


at dawn we watched the sunrise

splashing colors on the day

and when we got too hot

we swam the afternoon away

at dusk we danced in meadows

flecked with flashing fireflies

while zephyrs whispered secrets

under hazy azure skies

at night we told tall tales

as we sat beneath the stars

you were the goddess venus

and I the man from mars



dark secrets

smaller mist

dark trees ferment in forests deep

and stand in silent semi-sleep

with roots entangled underground

like secrets that we keep


and thus adjoined they won’t betray

the web of roots they hide away

but made of wood and not of stone

they all will fall one day
