The folds of your heart

A heavenly dance

Bathed in a sacred starlight
Carrying nothing but light
From the solstice you were born
From light we all drew breath
In night you disappeared
As you hid beneath the whispers
And lay amongst the stars
High above
I found you dancing
Upon a gilded floor
Sculpted from love
The dance floor of the muses
The dance floor of the heavens

Forgotten Limestone Quarry

This limestone quarry in the Upper Peninsula of Michigan used to be one of my favorite swimming spots as a kid, but it’s been closed down and mostly abandoned for the last few years.Calsbar Quarry.jpg

Dark skies

Rolling, rolling
It crashed over the horizon

They listened
But their fear couldn’t silence the thunder

To capture time

He could think of nothing less
Than to give her the world,
So out of words he built the cosmos.
