             Fairmont Balcony


In the haze of a fog-kissed morning,
we stand on the edge of bliss,
Safety and warmth lie to the rear;
we need only retreat into the known,
forsaking these whispered chances that say,
"everything could start anew."

Hanging in the blackness
of this artificial light,
we fear this final step;
we doubt the subtle certainty of sun --
forget its unwavering power
to burn through this haze
and bear us on the thermals of our dreams.

Beautiful work, Ram. I like the first two lines.
