Dreams of Elysium





"In your light I learn how to love.
In your beauty, how to make poems.
You dance inside my chest,
where no one sees you."
-Rumi


If the world was exactly
the same except that
we loved,
how would I see this
Medieval night?

Would the jasmine
moon float
brighter
or softer in
its lacquer bowl?

Would the stars
that nail this tiny
fossil to infinity
vanish and
resurrect
with
greater joy

or fade to black
against the
backdrop of
your touch?

I'll never know that
world where you
made my life
a miracle.

So much beauty locked
in a chest of
secrets and
canvases untouched.

So I'll gather the stars
that I know
and honor the
crescent goddess
that fell from
Elysium

with you in that life

and the dream
of you here.

Patricia Joan Jones
