Where The Sun Goes Up…

Where The Sun Goes Up…

written by: Dr. MOLLY JOSEPH

 

with the sun
         on your face
the wind
           chiming in
a thousand
            whispers
I meet you
           at the threshold… 

paddling 
            through life
its stressful
                waves,
beating 
            the  heat
of unbearable 
                    angst
with the 
         quiet rebellion
of many a
            scorching 
summer,

I meet you
          at the threshold…

behind us 
            spread 
the yawning 
                  void
of beaten 
                paths
cobwebbed 
             corners..

onward 
         we traverse
chiselling 
            our ways
smelling 
          the earth 
that  
       stretches 
anew…

blessed
         our births
destined 
           to meet
on radiant
               shores
where
        the sun
goes up,
              when 
the moon 
              is low..
