Wish We Were There

Here, the stars are plentiful.
No city lights to dim their glow.
Two huge moons,
one in the water, rippling
with silent laughter,
the other floats overhead,
a giant, yellow balloon.

Sounds in the surrounding gloom
don’t frighten. The lonely howl
of a coyote. The scrabble
of claws on sandstone.

Your arms around me, warm
breeze of breath
on the back of my neck
make anywhere
my paradise.

    Lovely expression of how our perceptions of the same state can be different depending on how we are feeling inside. Love the imagery of two moons 🙂 bb
