Sundown

Sundown

written by: John Drudge

 

Approximation
Is all I need from reality
An impression of things
Flowing through
A scattering mind
The blues of the ocean
Becoming the path
Of my wandering
Over the bones
Of souls lost at sea
With new lands of beauty
Seeping into me
Through constant turns
Of curiosity
Imprecise and alone
On the less travelled path
Through the wilderness
Of tempered flailing
Leaving trails of blazing reds
Across the evening sky
Where the life we live
Is the art we leave
As the sun sets
On the fading horizon
Like a sigh
