The Gatekeeper
(Connecting Generation to Generation, Moment to Moment)

I can still see him
walking the land
at the end of our day —
his long shadow
stretching across the land
saluting the setting sun,
listening to the breeze
slowly moving the pines
each in concert with the sunset.

Surveying his domain
in a moment of thanks,
collecting the feelings
inspired by nature’s
changing of the guard
continuing life’s connection
to all things now
and all things to come.

Even as before, I watch
him through youthful eyes
now knowing his thoughts
formed by years of experience
and a Devine connection
to the rhythm of the ages,
the language of the universe.

Not just another sunset,
but a passing of the baton —
connecting the day with the night,
yesterday with tomorrow,
creating moments of recollection
of life’s passages from now to forever,
insuring our never-ending existence.

One Liners

The dream at the end of the day, sided by tall cactus.

A dream I go back to every four years.

Broken cycles gathering tomorrow’s dreams.

Darkness comes first beneath the mountains.

Layers of orange and indigo-blue dye above blackness.

Stars moving in over a clear sky left by thieves.

Fresh lemons squeeze in a glass of tequila.

Little dark shadows with wings flying above.

An empty glass left on the white wicker chair.

Thoughts of tomorrow’s first cup of coffee.

I turn on the iPod connected to the Bose.

She in Houston, I in Tucson — a text message alert.

Little things, the makings of dreams.

Fun facts, or fake news?

Contemplating A Winter Sunset   1 comment

Contemplating a winter sunset
over hot tea near the patio fire pit

Viewing the dramatic line between
light and darkness as perception fades

Nocturnal sounds move in
on night shadows

In search of solitude
placing the night in still-life.
