The Eyes You Gave to Me

The sea came as a visitor in the night

and bore you away to a place I cannot reach

With the eyes you gave to me on the solstice

I see across the maelstrom waves

to the garden that fate planted for you

and you, shrouded in white

walking the cliffs in search of an offering

to cast away into the sea

As you wait for the fog to cover your island

shrouding the horizon with a vision of your dreams

I will build a lighthouse on this forgotten coast

to cut through the mist and show you the way back to me

It snowed all day without stopping here in Denver, and it’s supposed to keep going tomorrow–the best kind of day for staying inside with a cup of tea (or six) and writing.
