Halcyon Days

It started with a leap
From a cliff at the edge of the world
Where the descent felt everlasting
we plunged together
reckless youth
forcing our future
like small gods drunk on divinity
jagged rocks rose from uncertainty
time and tide swept us apart
into storms we needed to conquer
they tried to drown you
so you held your breath
until the buzzing of bees
carried you to a familiar place
where kingfishers catch memories
from a wind-beaten shore
I stood upon the beach
lighthouse bright
welcoming halcyon days
that quelled the maelstrom
so we could spend every winter
at peace within ourselves
