Electric Blue

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

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

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

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

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