kaleidoscope dreamers / by Ellen Sorensen

take me to that stony bluff

on the island surrounded by a river

meadows of birch trees and blackberries

where water laps upon the rocky beach


hands stained red with sweet juices 

bellies full of berries and summer wine

picking wildflowers and staring at the clouds

fingers entwined as the sun bathes us


you keep my heart steady and soft

like warm breezes sweeping over us

we're kaleidoscope dreamers

spinning reality in circles to suit us


 we're everything our dreams can see

we're everything we want to be
