The Sea Reflected in the Sky

The Sea Reflected in the Sky
 
 
many masts of mist
billowed a spray of
possibility
as envisioned by my desire
 

dreams are fine for awhile
but delusions soon
require
a quill of many cursive swirls
to curl a vision fit
for a King's ransom of fantasies
 

she stepped from the bow
somehow
onto the crest of a wave
 

tsunami quelled
and felled by the peace
in her soul


the shore wiggled
and parted for each step


laughter glittered on the wings
of crystal eagles
gliding and sliding
through clouds at first drifting
then soaring like kites
on    the    strings    of    imagination
 

no, I did not question
my good fortune
I held her
and the universe
became


                  something else
