The Sea Reflected in the Sky

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

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

she stepped from the bow
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

                  something else
