The rising sun brings ease,
Yet it burns my eyes
Is this world
Lit by the light of dreams?

Alone I stand
As I plant my feet
In the cool morning sand;
To softly bury
My uncertainties and yesterdays,
And stay hidden
In the riddles of the green woods
That linger within reach,
And the tireless ocean breeze.
Invite me in
This impossible veil;
Invisible seam, betwixt and between
Dreams dreamt
Without and within,
To sort out some fallen strands of light,
When all life is but the blink of an eye.

Where would we be without our dreams?

Mechanized, justified, in profane
Disenchanted worldviews
Fed by creations misused.
Beyond these fading woods
Swelling cities encroach
As a boundless mirage;
Overflowing emptiness.
Womb of cold comfort
Silencing the call.

Take this song and reveal
Those fallen strands of light.
We’ll honor the Earth
And its wonders.
For the rolling stream travels
Always, onward somewhere,
Rounding out stones
Once thought impenetrable;
Leaving behind bits
Of scattered gold, not caught by eyes
Behind drapes of arrogance;
It makes no sense
That we have arrived
To any end but ourselves.
Stumbling on to understand this dream,
Looking round, is it the dream that stands under me?

The wind howls
Through twists and turns,
Down cold alleys
Of crumbling crags
Jutting out
Among green shaded seas.
The beauty here
Is fettered by fear.
Dangling off the edge
Of a clifftop,
Land below
So far off
Yet so near.

Suddenly the sun beams
Soft and warm on shivered skin.

The sun rises, reveals all
Elements once as one in darkness.

A fertile state of unknowing;
Just letting it all be,
Lit by the light of dream.

A distant fire leads me
On through rippling trees.
