Turning Point

Clouds above and below DSC_0554The blue of the sky ~
Is reflected intensely
On the surface of the water ~
As are my familiar
Face and body ~
My doppelgänger ~

Clouds above and below ~
I stand balanced here
On the silver line
That separates the two ~
Caught ~ it would seem ~
Between two realities ~

In the eyes of the world
I have already chosen ~
But I think I will decide
What becomes of me ~
I am the only one
Who knows the truth ~

I must choose my
Course of action wisely ~
My destiny rests
On what I do tonight ~

Air Water Fire Earth

Earth Air Fire Water

I look up into the
Deep blue vault
Of the heavens
And think of the thin skin
Of the atmosphere
The only thing that
Keeps us from the
Dark cold depths of
Space and instant
Annihilation

I stand at the edge
Of the ancient cliff
Looking down at the
Restless ocean
As it crashes and
Breaks against the
Shore
Another attempt
In its timeless battle
To take back the land

And later still I sit
Gazing into the fire
Basking in its warmth
Thinking of long ago
Days when I was
A child and Summer
Was forever
And love was ever
A shimmering promise
On the edge of my
Horizon

I remember the fields
With the sun on them
The ripening grain
The forever rows of corn
Tasseled and shining
Green as the leaves
On the trees
That surrounded
And sheltered our
Home

Thus I recite my litany
Air Water Fire Earth
And I feel the pull of you
As I feel the effects of
The gravity I cannot see

To me you are the most
Elemental of all
Without whom nothing
Matters
You are the love of
All my lives

I see the remembrance
Within your eyes as well
And peace and love
Enfold us
We have found each other
At last
