By
   My mind drifts

away

to one bright sweet

day.

I gathered my beautiful friend and

we climbed up and climbed and

beneath us

the soft grass fell away

to the rush of the river and

rocks below.

My enormous bonsai with

many lovely seats

within its branches,

Clings strongly but

Leans dangerously

close to the cliff's jagged edge.

Enveloping us in strong boughs and

soft green leaves.

Holding us fast with certain delicacy,

while the Sun sinks low

behind the hills

And the lights of the highway

arise in the dusk.

We watch

and

listen

and

dream

into

eternity ...
