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…

on this most gorgeous day…

I climb
from the sea, a
journey from underneath,
scraping, and crawling
toward my destiny,
I mind

the feelings
from the deep, as
they speak of love,
light, and the twisted return
of all that burns

me
from
beneath…as

spinning becomes relatable,
just like the tree tops
swaying in the winds dismay,
as they play together
in the midst
of all that’s lovingly displayed

for you and me,
on this most gorgeous day…

so… let us begin…

the river runs
north and south,
feeling the drift
of the current begin,
letting go
of the trembling within

for now…

discovering
more on the banks,
eddies sharply tasked
with creating stability,
loose leaves raining down,
cascading,
for deliriums sake

a break…

not far away,
stowed, and a little
out of control
wanting to resign,
as the love
of my life
passes by

walking
along the shore,
greeting the love,
missed by a kiss,
forevermore, remiss

the light…

cascades
through the trees,
dancing, and
entrancing,
so majestically
touching
the being withdrawn
from within, so…

let us begin…

brushed ourselves with the winds

sparkling seas, reminiscent
of sparkling eyes,
as they laid upon
me that very first time

among
the open trees,
where we laid
so quietly

awaiting
the presence,
or stirring, of some
other kind of mention

oh,
how sublime
it is in reflection

not known
by name,
only ever by the
feeling that came

forth
in that moment,
as we held hands,
and looked up
at the opening,
so vast, ah, the beauty
is here at last

will it stay
was not even
a question we asked

there was
no need, as we began
to climb from the field
into the air, and whispered
among the trees songs,
so sincere,
and beautiful in contrast

a melody,
cast from shadows,
as they dance among the
gallows, and halls,
of times shallow walls

jumped over
so quick,
we were thin footed,
and running

in two,
we then split

as we
gathered up
momentum
and brushed
ourselves with
the winds, and broke
melancholy on a whim
