Child of the Sunfire

Child of the sunfire, moon on the sea,
Born of the waves, emerge to breathe
Nursed by the earth, you were born to be free
Searching the sand and the sea.

Babe by the seaside dripping castles of wet sand,
Giggling at the sandcrabs tickling your hands.
Run from the waves that would grab and pull your legs.
Squeeling and wet, so happy.
Are these thoughts of old remembered?
Searching the sand and the sea
Sparkling sifting through my fingers.

Out in the small surf, so much to learn.
Riding waves unbroken, to dive and turn.
Beneath explore treasures of the ocean floor.
Filled lungs are waiting to breathe.
Neptune’s room, don’t leave here too soon.
Searching the sand and the seaweed, bass and Garibaldi.

Beach fire licks the night air. Friends faces all aglow.
Fresh fish and abalone. Songs sung and tales told.
Pinapple juice dripping down the cheeks of youth.
Bright moon recalls an ancient story once well known.
Searching the sand and the sea and the foam.
Searching the sand and the sea.

Curves of a girl emerge, all this new hair.
Young man aroused, bothered, with guilt he stares.
Anxious to find, please first lover be so kind.
Clumsy, confused and scared.
Even with years of practice,
So much more waiting there.

Summer Santana from the desert blows offshore.
Hot restless longing demands for more.
Find in your gut a way out of this rut.
Do what you must, even leave,
Screaming out, the old ways in doubt.
Searching the sand and the sea
Looking in to find the true friend.

Driven by desire, ancient mystery.
Torn soul to save, anguished you seeth.
Love as above you must to be complete.
Striving for clear purity.
Teasing has to be relinguished.
Cleansing the love energy,
In control but not extinguished.

Sunlight on salt water warms the mists to rise.
Rainbows and storm clouds, lightning in the sky.
Gold fire glow through blue waters of the soul.
Cold and obscurity flee.
Child you are a star so go far.
Searching the sand and the sea.
Soon the nymphs will fly, love grown by.

Quest for the Opus, secret inner fire.
Rainbow aglow, God and Goddess aspire.
Return once more to the cove’s familiar shore,
Seeking the man who’s His liege.
Will She be found with a lady?
Searching the sand and the sea.
Deep within or in the ocean?
Searching the sand and the sea.

Guided by God and Goddess
Their love our love to bless.
Shining eyes glow. Worship in reverence.
Goddess through you flows as the God to you I go.
Blessed, entwined in Unity, awakening to Oneness.
Sky and Earth now sing out glory.

Child of the sunfire, moon on the sea,
Born of the waves,
From the belly of the breeze emerge to breathe.
Nursed by the earth, you were born to be free.
Searching the sand and the sea.
Searching the sand and the sea.
