Come Hither, Whispered the Sun, Seaside Creek Beach, Mendocino County, Pacific Coast Highway, California, United States of America

Follow the Sun

Come hither, whispers the sun
Heard even over the ocean surge
In the solitary peace
Of a lingering afternoon

Come hither, it whispers again

But I resist

The breeze with a whisper of its own
Admonishes me
Your place is here
On this solid earth

And the sand does feel good
Dimpled by my trail of steps
To where the ocean laps at my toes

There it is
Desire for a dream beyond my ready grasp
A tantalizing yet dangerous unknown
Stretches out beyond my ken to traverse

While I stand here
Content on my golden shore
To imagine a possibility
I may never pursue

I take off my shirt
The sun sighs, whispers again, yes, come. Come!
The next wave splashes foam onto my bare chest
Footsteps disappear beneath the ocean

Beyond the Mountains Blue, Howe Sound, Sea to Sky Gondola, Squamish, British Columbia, Canada

Desire

Where the filtered sun
Casts mountains blue
Across this deepest valley
Beyond a distant shore
The clouds so busy gathering
While here the skies so clear

But there I know she waits for me
Climb down, then sail, then climb again
Enwrapped within her arms
Perhaps by then the rain will come
Reverberant charms upon the tin
In rivulets down window pane
Lay with her in such sweet refrain
Flames crackling in the hearth

I feel the heat
Hot on my flesh
Alas it’s but the sun
It fuels a fire
Within my heart
Upon this rocky bluff
