Sunset Poetry (with Helle Gade)

I wrote a poem with my good friend and poet, Helle Gade. It was inspired by the amazing photography of Kim Stapf.


Theirs is sky above the trees
And we are lost below
The crimson failure
With a tangerine and blue indifference
Molten lava runs through our veins
While we gaze upon the liquid gold
That runs across the celestial sphere
As we try and find our way through life
Into a new horizon
Blanketed with clouds
And silhouettes of us
Entwined as scoria
With scarlet dreams
We enter the night
A new beginning
Of hushed whispers
