He thinks she might know
Her love waits upon rocky beach
For reason unseen standing there
Alone before they meet

Michigan Sunrise

Sky spreads serenity
Atmosphere melts
Peaceful fallout
Radiant health

Torch upon
Rich evergreen
Peaceful wake
Though it seems coincidence
Or purely dream

Crisp air fresh
Deep held breath
Golden sky on fire perched
Inspiring bold primaries clash colorcast

As if then calm
Horizon line glows
Contemplating celestial bodies
Philosophizing death unknown

Clouds that cool
Over volcanic hell
A beautiful moment
Eternal in itself

Shivering

Emotions uniting
Wind song through trees
Breeze stirs lake lapping
Shivering sighs, trembling leaves

Even from the fairest breeze
Old branches crash & trees lose leaves
Kicked bucket of tears can’t swim upstream
Still wonder when did she think of me?
