children of the light


we danced in the rain
beneath the streetlamp
our minds drifting
past the invisible moon
into carelessness

we lived in a place
without birth or death
a visual paradise
where angels in the sky
longed to touch down

at night we chanted
for the moon and rain
to call the children
hiding beyond the light
to dance
and dance again

I never dreamed


you forgot to tell me
where you had gone
so I wandered into the night
dreaming I would find you
somewhere safe

the night never ended
neither did the dream
of finding you
beyond the treetops
as an infinite light

Stars on Water


When sails are set high
And the wind is just right
We can coast
Toward the shore
We can make it
Before light.

The stars up above
Are like a guide
That we trust
When their light
Reaches out
We know we are loved.

Meteor


Beyond the atmosphere
enjoying the colorful scenery
flying really fast

Earth is my dartboard
and I am way off base

I wish I could hit the ground
but I am just one
out of trillions
flying beyond
any gravitational pull

I would lie
if I said I was part
of the dinosaur extinction

Would be wrong
if I said
I was a twinkle
in someone’s eyes

Truth be known
nobody has any idea
where I landed
beyond any planet’s horizon
