In a dream,
I sailed the night sky,
swallowed the music of the stars,
merged with them, glowing incandescent,
red shifting, drifting through time and beyond–
and when I woke,
I took your hand. We opened a door
together, began a new life,
of hopes, fears, love, tears–
ebbing, flowing, drifting through time–and beyond.
I’m using this Redon painting again because it fits.
