Poem of the Week

Let Me Dream

When we first met you were a stranger
it took a long time for love to grow
once in full blossom it seemed to not
remain that way but grow fuller each year

the immortal plant living between heaven and earth
floating endlessly on the waters where there is nothing
to think about while having the moonlight dancing
off our bodies as we lay upon a sandbar
surrounded by dancing porpoises
singing from a far off land
by the time we awaken the next morning
we are back home
where we were before
lying on the grassy hill
overlooking fields of wandflowers, bluebells, and lupines.
