Every year

I place your vines

In a different site

Along the fence

Waiting in suspense

To see if you will grow


You have chosen not to

Share your passion

The embodiment of my longing

But I am stubborn

Will not give up


One more time

I bid you climb

Calm my three-beat heart…

Midnight dreams invite the wanderer

To tread a confusing landscape

Yet each step is somehow safe

Although nothing compares to

Dawn dreams, waking dreams

Where we weave through fog

Precariously stepping

Into a familiar landscape of

Greens, browns and a touch of red

Beauty in sleeping safely

Beauty in cognizant danger

Trancing through life’s illusions…
