You and me on a boat

drifting between heaven and earth.

Funny faces and parental nicknames

like nappy and blankie.

We’re rugged from it all.

Tired and oddly inappropriate.


But together we’re something else entirely.  

We’re mountains or islands

we’re something larger

something worth exploring.

Yes, we are new and uncharted territory.

Wild animals never seen

flowers never painted.

New and old

and never imagined heights

tickle our noses.

Wine falls from the heavens.

You squeeze my hand

and take my coat.

I hold your heart and never let go.

Glow worms hang from silk

and adorn our togetherness

with wonder.

-Saschia Johnson
