Aurora of Daybreak
Sit and watch the world spin through spirit valley,
Force me to slow my pace and match hers,
Before we are met with the aurora of daybreak...
As the sun sets on a lonesome desert,
The cowboy rests his wild spirit,
The evolution of a canyon,
Worn down by passing rains,
Until roots sink in...
Explosion of Sunlight
The silhouettes dance on a cliff, greeted by an explosion,
The explosion of sunlight, dripping off the horizon,
To be filtered before returning tomorrow...
Touch of Morning
Light cascades into my hand,
As the sun begins ascending into view,
And my fingers meet the touch of morning...
The shaking of the grasses in the morning breeze,
Lets loose the wispy sound of wind to enter,
Into tango with the birdsong of the country air...
A labyrinth of vistas snaking wildly,
Each one a maze of valleys running,
Along the alien scape of red rock...
The darkness of a sullen cave,
Makes its departure once a day,
When all is aligned...
You best watch where you're walking,
The rocks around here are my terrain,
I'm the f*cking lizard king...
The hilly summits watch traffic from above,
Yearning for a simpler time before greeting and intrusion,
When time passed easily on the valley below...
Sunset spans a field of telepathy the world over,
Consisting of subterranean expanses and chemical airways,
Who's cheif can finally meet with the main ingredient...
I squeeze past a man twice my size to find the middle seat
And let my tired body sink down into it without care
On top of the metal buckle that my hand will have to reach
around for, searching like the tentacle of an octopus for which side is where
Oreoed between two strange humans is not where most people thrive
At least I like to think I do
Watching as the attendants board their invisible craft and drive
Miming seatbelts, exits, masks, babies, shoes
Waiting for departure leads me to look around
To the men and women that undergo this same journey as me
We will move together through time and space, miles off the ground
Could their purpose be the same as mine?
As the gravity around me shift ever so slightly
And I feel the movement more than see it
The hair around my neck perks up and my stomach condenses tightly
Not out of fear, but excitement
To what new place will this middle seat lead?
