Merge to Dissolve

I don’t fully believe
in destiny
or will

But after meeting you
in our dream –
your ochre, burnt umber, russet skin
trapped by me
in different lights –
how can I not
in fate

or that we
this union
willed?

    In length and in the demands placed upon the reader’s attention span , this poem is something of a will o’ the wisp ; but one that leaves an indelible imprint in its aftermath.
