i dreamed

of blackberry kisses

stars that traced my shoulder

landscapes explored

places remembered

eyes of onyx, raven hair

trails in the moonlight

nights without number

days without care


there is a place

and you are there

a dog, two cats

some chickens in the yard

a swing for rocking

to watch the sunrise

 share a little shiver —

hold each other tighter

to soothe the morning chill

a new life starts

with us
