Our Sanctuary

March 29, 2011

Out in the shades of sunset,
Deep hues cast the trees in bronze
The mountain peaks and tall pines
Issue forth a call, a summons,
That we simply could not ignore
A most primal instinct, manifested
In the desires of two human beings
With the only outcome to be
Self-exile
A pause from the everyday
A careful escape from everything
That we held dear

It was not to run away
From city life,
It was to dive into the
Open mouth of nature
We wanted to be
Digested by the earth
And let ourselves grow
Up from out of the soil

There, a love blossomed, such
As the world had not seen in ages
The communion of two
(Three if you count the mountain)
Forged a new, sacred life
Beneath a hundred-foot oak
We signed the contract
With the sweetest kiss
I have ever known
