celestial spheres

like heavenly spheres are we
revolving in our daily cycles

with the light of each new day
i rise to her sweet slumbering

as the moon travels my sky
the sun illumines her labors

i pick through waking thoughts
as she floats through dreams

yet we inhabit the same space
defined by impassioned hearts

unaware of the heavy setting sun
heedless of the wandering moon

awaiting only a moment of bliss
to unravel this twisted time

and bring the celestial forms
into harmonious alignment

and allow the sun and moon
to find their perfect embrace

Çeşme, Turkey 24 July 2012

As the sun sets on one side of the bay at Çatal Azmak…

…the moon rises over the other.
