Face of the Sun (Day 64)

Resplendent veiled light
I cannot go deeper into it
today the face of the sun
is lifting off  
heat crackling like paper
smooth as cream   and slow
as blackberry honey in
a cold cabinet
I cannot go deeper into it
those midnight murky caves
of greedy desire and
single-minded passion
devoured piece by piece
like grapes,
up amongst the white
marble columns glowing
rose-gold in a March sunset
