 words from the soul

The price of Sun




They come over the road

Knowing the journey took walking through snow

Desert parching dry

The ocean covering westward static back to the Midwest

For the road northeast

Following the Atlantic tropical days

The darkness confusing the mind

Searching the light for the soul

Seeking words that speak silence in peace descending

Above the waters and snowing days

Exile  dreams over the horizon

Owning souls claiming their birth

They come, sometimes crawling into passage

The price of sun

One room parched with cement wall shimmering

Prison bounds across air breathing life

Walking away from morning sun into recourse

Promise affluence as their steps cross the ocean wide

Road where towels and pillows wait for their aged callous  hands

 others see looking down

no one asks where is your pillow and towel that wash dreams

Into exile
