Imaginings

A green tent bobs in a pine-needle sea
Beneath a grey-dawn sky.

Cricket sounds
Fill the dreaming void

Stirring into life
Behind sleeping eyes.

Morning songs take the forms of birds
And gladness paints the feathers

When I think of you
Whom I've never seen

Your image in my mind
Completes the scene.

We wander like children
Through a paradise of stars,

Watch the moon,
Deny the passing hours.
We leap over mountains
And hug giant flowers.

We climb the tallest rainbow
Kiss softly, and then

Our thoughts become tears and
Dissolve into air.

Our cares become joys
And our happiness soars

Like the dream of a god
Like the miracle of love

As our lives are perfected
In a single wish

Forever
And forever.
