petals and pearls

I take trips back and forth up the mountain
while relegating

the misery I feel, like a pin drop

of blood
after the storm stops

I watch

the sunrise
over my heart of flowers
atop

our bed of petals and pearls

made from
loves most tranquil and delicate fibers
surreal

stitched
in the early morning, and
weaved with the fabric of our present glory

these two hearts, believe

in all they see

especially when pain arises
with the most pressing need

the dream tree…

the veins of the earth pour
through me, as I sit quietly, contemplating
the tree, me, and all I see…

…I wonder if this life is really meant to be,
or, if the me I see, is simply a reflection
of the dream tree…

cascading light reflects off the tree, and
I gather up memories bound underneath the sea,
and wish for another reality

where pain and pleasure go together,
like twins, conjoined in a love so tender,
kind, and altogether

reminiscent

of the mystery,
we’ve spent our lives trying to out figure…
