TIME

Again he waits and wonders
Mishandling time

Breaking the promise
Of not dawdling as though
Time was promised

Perspective was jarred
Dealt a blow
The dust has settled
Must now assume his space in it
Before ashes takes its turn

SUNSET

minutes before sunset
the spell has been cast
spellbound mortals
eased to a halt
faced due west
concerns evaporate
mesmerized in a dream
summoned by the gods
gaze steadfast
into magnificent skies
the sun disappears
beyond the horizon
it’s gone to rest
dusk is born
the setting sun in infinite glory
on santorini greece
the spell lifted

Photo taken on Maui where the experience was the same.

On Santorini it felt like there was more to it. Maybe

because this place is atop an ancient volcano.
