Valleys of Lucidity

Sweet smells 
of musky green love
hang high in the ceiling 
   close to were we are 
an altitude high 
hazy still state 
laughs of swellness rain down 
close to where we never dwell, sober and unswayed

              it's hard to stand still in the rain

 but heavens bliss is a blanket of innocence 
red view in the rear view -lights flash 
sweet bird softly land
     birch blue is anew as life is 
aglow, aglow,  aglow
all around me 
is all I know 
please don't tell me I should go
outside it is getting late 
policeman listen don't you know

people grow old waiting on their own lives to unfold

I want answers to loosen their hold on secrecy 
let them dance with me
waltzing away
a ticket that's crisp as autumn is handed to me
last of him I hope to see, on to another steep fall into valleys of lucidity
