soul mates

The light shines on a lake
Surrounded by estates of trees.
The elks jump through the pines
Chasing the honey bees.
The sweet, fresh smell of nectar
And spring morning dew
Fill the air with happiness
And memories of you. 1 comment

I can't quite explain to anyone
The view from the highest tree.
No camera, paint or paintbrush
Can show you what I see.
The leaves smell like cashmere
And the breeze is clear and true.
I'm lost in a daze of peace
And thinking about you. 2 comments

The hunt ended years ago
And still my lungs can breathe.
I've done my time behind the gate
But now I'm finally free.
Elders say I've made a mistake
And yet I cannot rue.
I'm too absorbed in beauty
To think of anything but you. 1 comment

I wish that you were here, my love,
Here in the highest tree.
I tell you, no words can explain
The beauty I now see.
I know you'll show up soon, my love.
The breeze rings clear and true.
Until then, I'll write a poem
Especially for you. 1 comment
