We wandered,
Never in silence long, for you
Were full of
                       questions;
Or, one question, rather,
Asked too much --

And I, smiling and secret,
Equipped with only two answers:
                        truth,
And one other, less precarious,
That I chose to supply ...

Below us, the earth was yielding,
Fertile,
                        painted
In purple hue and gold that waved
Brightly, above breathing canvas,
Rolled in hills of gentle green ...

We wandered,
Between the fossils towered,
                          tumbled,
Tossed, as though their bulk was only
Sand and starlight.
Shadow-cold, sun-warmed,
                          stretched
Contemplative, between extremes,
In wonder, and wondering,
Dreaming, perhaps ...

The river raged below,
And yet it only seemed
A louder
                        whisper,
Lulling, inviting, seductive --

Now, in distance,
                        haunting --
For with eyes closed, I feel
The warmth of sun, and
Of you.

  




 Full fathom five thy father lies,
Of his bones are coral made,
Those are pearls that were his eyes;
Nothing of him that doth fade
But doth suffer a sea-change
Into something rich and strange...


--William Shakespeare, from The Tempest

Amazing, awesome, I love it. The way you wrote it, my eyes just jumped down the page, opening wider with ever piece.

Excellent Kess. . .

The journey starts with that first step. . .but sometimes, it's who you journey with that makes all the difference too. . .

Superb as always. . .

I don't know whether to laugh or what. This sounds like turbulent serenity to me. Just exactly the kind of trip I'd like to make. Romance, laughter, nature...sigh. Sounds wonderful to me.
