Harbingers

Valley to valley,
shapeshifting sands,
mountains slipping down
and through my hands, 

peak mirages
yet they block my view,
do not permit ascent
from the shadows
to vistas of truth, 

yet I knew
beyond the traps and setbacks,
somewhere out there
was a billowing mast

and endless skies of blue
and a sail or cloud or both
to take me away to where I knew
my hopes as harbingers
had successfully found

the place where all my dreams
come true:
mid-ocean,
where I crossed paths
with you.
