JOURNEY’S CLOSE

a man from a burning house
i ran over fields over biting stone
wounds bleeding sorrow
and pain weeping from my
skin-torn limbs
until after years
the sea washed my heart clean
the earth drank my tears
the sky drew the poison
from my side
and death-weary
i came to rest here beneath
the tree by the lake
rising
to see you tall before me
real your eyes meeting mine
the ease of your breath
weaving with mine
tapestries
my queen
my endless home
