the Elysian Fields we knew

my fallen body
     the Elysian Fields we knew
 
the songs of the god birds immortal
from Mount Olympus once more
resonate along the riverbeds
the butterflies of the winds
dusk twilight to risen scarlet sun
garnet upon snow capped tetons
the dances of the souls imbibing
ambrosia
the flowers of the fragrances
of the foggy valleys of yesterdays
the pregnant remembrances of
the Elysian times of our soul embraces
lavenders of spring wild phloxes
in the meadows joy flirting with the
red and yellow bees the peacock calliopes
kissing the early sunrise golden blooms
brush strokes on canyon banks slopes
cheerleading the iridescent butterflies to
penetrate pollinate partake feed into
the nectar
 
dance with me love again and again and again
take me my soul the revenant of my fallen body
eternal a journey in the meadow where we met
down the riverbed in the Elysian Fields we knew
