Cherry Lane

We laid in the grass together

you and I,


In the Cherry Esplanade.

We heard children laughing

Birds singing

And then nothing.

We lost time.

We were gone

Safe in slumber

That came with no warning.

The earth accepting our breath

The weight of our perceptions

Dissolving into space,

Our still bodies mere symbols.

The eyes I use to judge myself

were never used that day.

I only saw beauty,

Felt goodness

Knew truth,

And lived happily ever after

Together with you.


-ZG Daniel
