The Sun Circles The Earth


The Sun Circles The Earth

As the sun circles the earth
peaking through the barriers
that we build to protect ourselves
which serve to keep us hidden
from our own light
The fear of burning pleasantly
consumes our time
and we create reasons to hide
lounging in soft shadows
instead of walking out
embracing the gold
worshipping the circle of time

Threshold


Threshold

On the edge of alone and lonely
standing
a precipice with barely a line between yet so deep a fall
overlooking
knowing that only the fear of the greatest unknown
self
keeps motion still
hesitating
a leap of faith from the faithless
required
stepping through the threshold
dream to life
life to dream
one road across
built
