Landscape of Youth by Christine Tabaka





Landscape of Youth

When was the last time
you laid with me
upon a hillside green?
Staring up at blue sky,
holding hands, weaving dreams,
as the whole world melts away.

With winter behind us,
spring is within reach.
It is once more time
to awaken sleeping passions.
Bare feet and sun kissed faces,
enjoying the warmth of each other.

Soft fragrant grass.
Birds’ mellifluous chants.
The reverie comes alive,
as we share moments of bliss.
Days of youth relived.
Regrets filed safely away.
The hillside stretches before us,
beckoning once more.
