We climb a mountainous desert, to a beckoning Indian spring,
buzz of insect traffic jams, sun doing tangos on skin.
Brightness of the pure sky, assures a memorable night,
milky weave, falling stars let go to vigilís light.

A hot, magical brew bubbles up from the molten core,
we soak away dusty roads, both traveler and explorer,
pondering natureís powers, how swiftly we forget
letís join the heavenly show, oh death,
do not come yet.

Dear Corinne

This is a lovely poem.

"..sun doing tangos on skin"

liked those lines. Nicely written
poem altogether.

Upon thy slumber shall intrude,
Our thoughts, our souls- O God above!
In every deed shall mingle, love."

I believe I have let go, recently, its a wonderful feeling. I don't know what letting go may bring me but I sure enjoy the moment.
But I think I would prefer to share the moment, with a sweet friend.

Great poem, it's as if you are siting on a beutiful sandy white beach, just enjoying the beuty that life can sometimes bring, your poetry is truly immortal and even when we are all gone, your legacy will live on in the hearts of the dreamers, who like you like to sit back and taste the sweetness, of lifes fruits . Lovely, well written poetry, I liked it loads .
