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.

Kim

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

Beyond the Glass

searching for
a world beyond
the glass where
ceilings melt
into blue sky.

refusing to
surrender on
the outside
looking in.

shadows speak
of sacrifice like
work has never
failed and

dreams are not
an endless staircase
into hell.
