by Nicole Long
The sun rose out of the ground like a Phoenix
Orange, gold, yellow, darkness calling her name
Sitting on a dock, sipping champagne
Examining the great Wilmington Marsh
As the Spanish Moss swung to the beat of my heart
There are no sounds here
Cars long gone, neighbors beyond the horizon
I only have my mind
Whisking away to the unknown
