Falling stars upon the Caribbean
Heat baking down to my bones Wishing for a spit of dry land & Marooned with a lady of nice tones
Mirages dancing out on the water
Out on the flight deck for the breeze Need to flesh out my humid mind Fantasies alive out on the high seas

They’re all retreating to the tropics
Away from the city & the grime
Needing a natural heat source
Freeze to death if we don’t find the time Like this: Like Loading...

Lost in the silhouette of a shadow
Emerging as the heat begins to recede
We cannot know what the day holds
Only the way our imagination feeds
Getting outside while the city still sleeps
Early, but I need to get air into these lungs
Darkness illuminates my quiet solitude
Exposing the songs we need to be sung
I feel lost & ineffectual most days
But I haven’t given up living yet
Stretching this old body once more
Finding answers once I’ve sweat Like this: Like Loading...
Riding out these rough seas
Trying to shield our shipwrecked daughters
Storms moving in on us rather quickly
Feeling Hell’s heat & it’s only getting hotter
From port to port, not knowing where to go
Remaining free & clear is the only way to live
Every day out on this cleansing ocean
I pray to the Lord, in the chance He might forgive Like this: Like Loading...

Summer fades in our hearts
Though it’s still warm outside We begin to look forward to Autumn & beauty that coincides The air will find a little chill & we’ll see Winter on the attack Soon, we’ll be yearning for heat Wishing for seasons to cycle back Like this: Like Loading...
Sundown brings on the reduced heat
Wind whispering to sail with the tides
Vapors tread quietly upon the feet
Decisions enter & thoroughly abide
Lonely bird settles down on the rails
Experience brings on a sullen glow
We cannot escape when life fails
Currents grip & provide the undertow Like this: Like Loading...

Skipping & trying to dodge this oppressive heat
Dreaming I’m far away on the distant shore
A hundred years ago with sand burning my feet
I wish to be scantily clad, sipping a daiquiri & nothing more Like this: Like Loading...
Summer girls/winter women
Refreshing my sullen mind Taste of joyous inspiration Love heightened upon rewind Basking in the light of sunshine Energized by glorious visions The heat dwells deep within Passion rising in absolute precision

Quiet relief from the heat of day A respite from the din of voices The quell in an otherwise doldrum way
Taking time to breathe the stirred air
Before the winds turn into a squall The disruption of bored stagnation The afternoon not so quiet after all Like this: Like Loading...
The summer is already sweltering
I’m trying to survive, so I have nothing on
The neighbor lady won’t stop staring
Perhaps I shouldn’t be out here watering my lawn

These are our summer moments
Ones they’ll never take away The heat warming our souls Waves of memories to close the day Clinging to the last hours of sun Knowing they’ll become finite When all we really have is us Slow dancing into the night Like this: Like Loading...

Finding the sunshine
Feeling the glorious heat Remembering the time Our lonely lips did meet
Saving me from despair A slow march to the sea Loosening of our tongues Another chance to be free Getting our bodies outside A good stretch in open air I love your everything, but You’re best when you’re bare Like this: Like Loading...

Timid changes to the way we survive
Ducking our heads when the water finally rises
Perpetual fatigue ponders if we’re still alive
Each heartbeat wrapped within fervent surprises
Another day emerges from the absence of light
This mug of swill – my only source of heat
Creaking past the endless repetition of night
Punch drunk, but still standing; never admitting defeat Like this: Like Loading...

The impossibilities of transcribing the heart
Finding the usual tricks do less than impress Flustered; tripping over language Like when you see Summer’s first sundress
Yet we still have to exist in nature
Bodies moving slowly as the sun rises Love’s hibernation deliberately stretched The disguises that passion often emphasizes
Cautiously keeping patience in this heat
As the mercury continuously expands Rushing to the shore to discover relief Risking the mirage & being burnt by the sand Like this: Like Loading...

With Summer’s moonlight shining down
We’re not alive to merely appease everyone
Reminder to exist for your soul’s own sake
Basking in the fickle warmth of the rising sun
Released from those winter storms
Contending with heat & humidity down there
Be comfortable in your sovereignty
& thus release yourself from their stares
Do not double back & suffer fools
Stretch to become your complete ability
Expanding your mind to finally believe
& thus be fully & truly free Like this: Like Loading...

Hobnobbing on a summer’s day
Listening to a calm Pan flute Barefooted on the peaceful grass But this heat makes it all moot
Ignoring all the world’s hate
We choose love above all the static Holding on for a moral life Survival in this society is never automatic Like this: Like Loading...
