Sun dipped into the Ocean

Have you ever seen anything in your life more wonderful.

than the way the sun,
every evening,
relaxed and easy,
floats towards the horizon.

And in the clouds or the hills,
or the rumpled sea,
and is gone --
and how it slides again

out of the blackness,
every morning,
on the other side of the world.
like a red flower.

streaming upward on its heavenly oils,
say, on a morning in early summer,
as its perfect imperial distance -
and have you ever felt for anything
such wild love --
do you think there is anywhere, in my language.

a word billowing enough
for the pleasure

that fills you.
as the sun
reaches out,
as it warms you

as you stand there.
empty - handed --
for have you too
turned from this world --

or have you too
gone crazy
for power,
for things?
