Favorite Quote:
The day will come when, after harnessing space, the winds, the tides, gravitation, we shall harness for God the energies of love. And, on that day, for the second time in the history of the world, man will have discovered fire.
-Pierre Teilhard de Chardin

Tonight I curled upon a soggy wooden bench,
sprayed with the mist of the world below,
to hear the soft clapping of the waves beneath the dock.

Above the serenity was a different kind of calm.
Specks of fiery amber dissolved amongst charcoal,
a sea of water colors, a painted canvas in the sky,
a melting pot of harmony.
A blending of earth and sea,
wind and fire.

The tender skin of the sea mimicked the sky.
It wore the same pattern.
the vibrancy of above reflected itself magnificently below.

I used to bring her here all the time,
on nights just like this.
She was here in a different way tonight, though.
Her heart bore those shades of amber,
her soul the glittering reflection
sprinkled along the water"s surface.

When i left tonight,
i left a piece of myself
still sitting upon that bench,
drifting in the sky,
and dancing along the waves.

I left without her,
but left with her
at the same time.
