dead leaves dancing in the wind while i get high on caffeine and night air

old photographs
(recalling ancient times,
memories long since dead
living, live
in the mind) -
new memories,
let's create new memories!

precious memories,
precious days,
days of frolicking at the beach -
sunsets and sunrises

all is clear and lucid
in the moment
of inspiration

but it passes,
it passes like a phase,
like a dead leaf
dancing in the wind

in a moment and...
and it's gone!

wrinkled faces (experience) -
wrinkles turn to stone
turn to dust
turn to new life

infinity is waiting with open palms,
he beckons to us,
come! let's go
