She has seen into society
knows it for the sham it has forever been.
Drifting apart from her community
Setting on rocks at the edge of the deep,
Gazing off into the haze cloaked sea;
She wonders what life looks like ... afar.

He comes to conclude
Having been a history student these many years,
That Homo sapiens is a failed experiment.
Ascends often to mountain tops; lofty peaks.
Spends days looking up into the sky
Wishing he might simply drift up; away.

When the moon renewed
She felt pulled by gravity. No! Tides …
Stole the pretty blue rowboat;
Untied it from the pier.
Allowed herself to be carried by Moon’s magnetic force
Out across the shining, silver sea.

When the sun at solstice brightly shone
He felt drawn by light.
Slipped unnoticed into the gondola
stoked the fire, releasing thermal waves.
A red balloon in which he floats toward Sol’s blazing orb,
between ductile clouds … into the azure sky.

Somewhere apart from place and time
Where eternal sky meets eternal sea;
A point beyond earth and heaven’s curvature
noticing each other; hiding, smiling.
Shy first caress. A kiss!
Once separate, were united;
Beyond the sky and sea.
