As he stood on the top of a hill
Looking out over the terrain
His mind encompassed all in view
Yet going beyond that which is old
And that which is new.
The early morning sun had painted
With it’s palette and brush
All that was Mother Earth, all that was lush.
As he stood there and circled 360 degrees
All he surveyed as far as the eye could see
His emotions took hold as he threw his arms
Above him towards the heavens.
Questioning the joy of what belonged to him
At this finite moment in time
He knew that this magic, this corner of the world
Would always be etched in his brain as sublime.
And then his thoughts transcended once again
To a recent encounter with someone, a possible new friend
Who revealed the connection he now began to perceive.
A thought process dividing between dreams
And what is merely wishing and what is real.
Questioning these thoughts carefully from every perspective
To ensure that only the real survived his introspection
Keeping in check what he now began to feel.
As she stood on a hill across the country from he
Surveying as far as her eyes could see
The sunlight rapidly fading as lights began to twinkle
Her brows furled in deep concentration and thought.
Steeped in uncertainty, indecisiveness and questioning
Where to proceed having learned what life’s lessons had taught
Could she cast all her fears to the wind, or
Would she acquiesce or learn from what she had sought.
The majesty and beauty of so many towering peaks
With the twinkling valley which lay before her gaze
Caused a tear or two of appreciation to form
From all that her gaze has reaped.
She was alone, oh so very alone and wondered if
Someone existed who she could share this moment
A person who could transcend into this perfect scene
And connect with her senses, visuals and dream.
It was now dark as she made her way down the hill
Deeply enmeshed in this thought which gave her chills
For she now knew what she wanted, what existed in her
But did another even exist to share the many thoughts
As to what life in nature’s perfect world was all about
And would she even risk taking a chance to even seek
Another to go hand in hand to the towering peak
Filled with joy, ecstasy, fulfillment, and love.
HE AND SHE
He on the one side, and she on the other
Could they even find the path to be together
He was embroiled in the fight of his life
She was recovering from a path filled with strife.
What would it take for both to move forward
To seek out and search for that certain person moving the curtain
Who would move them, shake the earth under them
And bring contentment, happiness and love for certain.
Then a strange occurrence happened to the two
Simultaneously, but individually, a bright light shone
Showing a path with a unique view
Individually, they wondered if this could be a solution.
Would each once again gamble in a world filled with pitfalls
To seek and to find that which had eluded them all the while
To bravely traverse the stumbling blocks and mountains
And finally obtain that which in the distance appeared as a long mile.
He became determined to put himself out there
For all to see and comment upon
She became resolute in her quest in the unknown
And also at first timidly allowed a public to see
Who she really is and what she could be.
Call it destiny, accident or a fluke of nature
A connection had emerged with the efforts they made
And the mantle of unhappiness and sorrow has now begun to fade.
