hourglassEnough of poets singing

Of spring of youth,

Dawns of new love,

Sun rising over curving hills.


This old woman craves

More than silly spring,

Insipid dawn.

Now that morning has passed into evening.


Dear sunset lover,

Whirl around my hourglass

To watch with me, laughing

As my soft shore sifts away.


Dear rocket man,

Swirl me in your magic

To yet another sunrise,

Day in time.


Dear time traveler,

Swivel my illusion of

Sunset to gray

Into gray into rose dawn.


I worship you, Sun facing from the East.

I love you, my Sunset lover.



Words and photo my own.
