Electric Blue

June 2021 Solar Eclipse Sunrise – photo by gfs
(breathe) 
take hold of the electric air
too cold to burn
too blue to feel
the stream flowing into our lives

(ascending)
What waxed wings did Icarus fashion
to soar into the sunlight
Was his hope to find beauty
greater than his own love

(meaning)
The Sun’s rays turn to moonlight
melting before our eyes
casts these shadows of our own naming
our own designs on living

(descent)
Falling to earth
did Adam find his path
Where the gates from Eden opened
into the gates of hell

(breath)
Was there no other than the human
Lost forever waiting to be found
