As The Sun Rises

As The Sun Rises

I am never far,
not from love, nor from the heat
of it, not from you
nor your very truth
as I found it once and laid
hold of my blessing -
all rapt as I am
in the meaning of your gaze
when you touch my heart.

The image above is a sunrise view of Mount Hood as seen in the Portland Metro area. For many years I travelled to work in the morning on the local Interstate and got this sort of view and many others just as breathtaking.


  1. Is that

    I am never far
    No that can't be jim over there
    Some might say
    I am never far
    Is that Tim walking quickly
    From the public restroom
    You were just using
    Was it him you say
    I am never far
    From your blinds you look
    On a rainy day
    Is that a person
    Crouched between parked cars
    Across the way
    I am never far

    2. I meant, wander, I am not sure why you are thanking me. I really like this poem and I think it is because it is your best voice doing the writing.

    3. I was thanking you for bringing my muse back for a moment and letting it have its way witth me...i need more of that
