Just me, the Land and the River

On the night of the recent Full Moon, with Lily by my side I walked down to the flowing

river to view the Moon and saw her throw golden pearls upon the river’s face, creating a

pathway for her as a stairway from Heaven,

She stepped forth wearing dainty shoes and hovered upon the surface

but alas, I could not reach her asĀ  I stretched out a welcoming hand but she slipped away

from me like melting cheese,

I did try to climb an invisible ladder and for three brief seconds, I hovered

Neither between land and sea, a tiny wave in a sea of consciousness

Just me, the land and the river
