Excerpts from Realm of Belonging:
In the world’s immense vastness –
In the immeasurable universe –
we monopolize one another’s dreams.
I was her sidekick – but I’d impacted her.
Now I am the best investment she ever made.
No one could ever love her more.
My only true enterprise was my desire for her –
and for her happiness.
We shall live together for all times
in the Realm of Belonging.
~ Kieran York, “Realm of Belonging”
The music perked up as the rainbow illuminated the sky.
The poets believed it was resting atop the mountains.
The next gathering of The Poetry Playground Group
would explore the feasibility of a mountain wearing a rainbow.
