"Can't keep my eyes from the circling sky,
Tongue-tied and twisted
Just an earth-bound misfit, I"
~Pink Floyd

"Now is blessed
The rest
remembered "

~Jim Morrison

I imagined standing on round beach edges

of that rocky lake,

stars were pulled away by Night's handkerchief

prussian blue f a d i n g . . . as the Sun emerged

until folds of clouds rolled~~~out

like unraveled pink ribbons~~~

embroidering my thoughts

I didn't know a lavish sunrise could feel so unjustly sad

the world was beginning;

but my heart, still running and aimless

as we drove away from our weekly portent

The author's comments:

Originally, I had some words and phrases in different fonts to enhance the visual look of the poem and to underline the meaning, but due to copy and paste issues, some of the style was lost.
