A stillness flows over the open land
A blanket, the sky is my quiet shield
The ocean rolls softly toward the sand
Powers of this setting sun is revealed
Stretching out attempting to catch its rays
Letting them fall softly upon my hand
Wonderful feelings, always to amaze
Overcome by this sight so still I stand
Watching the horizon as colors spread
The big ball of fire is distinctly white
Crowned in yellow fading to orange-red
Giving my heart such a delightful sight
Until total darkness I’ll hold this place
With the feeling this land is full of grace
The deep ocean is intense indigo.
There is a sleepy feeling that it casts.
In its stillness there is not an echo.
Sky and water are losing their contrasts.
Rhythmic song of water against the ship,
Makes my eyes close. I feel the summer breeze.
I can taste the salt on my lower lip,
While the gentle rocking puts me at ease.
The sails no longer search for any wind,
While seagulls are not to be seen or heard.
The moment appears so undisciplined,
As if not a thing is to be disturbed.
The orange sun now nearly out of sight,
Quietly kisses the ocean good night.
The Moon I Do Not Know
Look at what you have done
You’ve chased away my sun
Now I shall deeply mourn
Who’ll guide me through the day
Why’d you take her away
You who makes me feel warm
After an angry storm
You who makes me feel bright
With your magical light
Your kiss I warmly feel
Shows life to be real
Once again you fail me
My heart is now empty
Your arrow hit her heart
And yet she did depart
Ice in my veins now flow
Warmth again shall not know
Love is by Chance
The sun slides silently upon the sea
Touching it with a kiss so tenderly
Yet causing great excitement in the sky
The clouds are blushing in orange and red
It is now time to put this day to bed
The sun now yields to the glow of the moon
Which creates a golden path to the shore
Calling me to a land of many dreams
My eyes get heavy as outward I look
This heart favoring dreams over a book
The path took me past the loves of my life
Seeing many joys each did bring to me
But like the sun of the day, each did end
For me is love to be ephemeral
While for some others it is eternal
If love be made of human emotions
Does a special combination exist
That pairs lovers for an eternity
Not so sure I would desire it to be
It would be fostering pre-destiny
The totality of life is a chance
With no guarantee there will be romance
