Autumn Winds

(July 22 1993 / Sanfrancisco, California)

Sunset


The light house shines as a beacon
To the travelers at sea
Staring up at our dismembered constellations
Where there's a shadow
There is always light
Standing at the oceans edge
The tide takes the worries with it
I can hear them dancing in the rain
Thundering in the clouds
Cries and screams are drowned
Carried away with a seizing wing
Delicate butterflies float along the sunset
As the sky turns from blue to pink
A picture painted by a delicate hand
And ever so slowly
The sun falls
Leaving a silver moon in its wake

Poem of the Day

poet George Gordon Byron

It is the hour when from the boughs
The nightingale's high note is heard;
It is the hour -- when lover's vows
Seem sweet in every whisper'd word;
And gentle winds and waters near,
