Where Dreams Elope

I don’t remember where I was,

when the Earth became my lover

Surrendering herself to me,

enticing all endeavor


Canyon Walls and Glacial Cliffs,

whose depths and heights I wander

Memory folding in upon itself,

my heart immersed in splendor


I now find love with every breath,

and every sight that lingers

As joy is wrapped in every smell,

that sets my thoughts to ember


To walk as one within the arms

of seasons, wind, and weather

Renewed of hope where dreams elope

—remarried to forever
