Sun Series circa Backpacking 101

“why is light”

if i could capture
the joyful emanation
of soothing mid-memory loveliness that is
this light of gold on this crest of world i would
open myself and breathe (inhale) its warmth
and release (exhale) from every pore its emanations
you would be intricate plants and sprawling grasses breathing in life (stretch)
from sun from sky
(breathe in more fully your life, live fully in oxygenated experience)
and only, you may only ask us why

all i see is
gold breaths cover the skin of Earth with glowing,
the glow of our cheeks after
(what, what does this evoke in your subconscious)
afternoon was heated, hot,
sweat on skin,
and now is calm-temperatured all
bodies simply are
(are you simply is)
and my eyelids know its there
the sunlight casting shadows
of eyelash, hair
on cheeks do they glow like you and
all you are glows
we are
(raise release raise roll)
and that means what you think it means but
I am always where I am
and you can join me there
in the sunscape
