The crisp crunch of dried straw accompanied him like a crackling companion

The world around him: green, blue, white, alive, dead

Was not in focus

He stared intently ahead

 

As the horizon approached

Heaven itself approached

And, suddenly

There she was

Skin transparent fair

A warm smell of lilies

A wisp  flow of dark blonde hair

 

The piercing blue eyes of ice

He broke into a run,

Tripping

Once

Twice

 

Again in his mind, he couldn’t move fast enough

Her legs around him, making him simply a sponge

Rung out

Ring in, celebrations

His breath was fast, broken, cold, warm, tough

 

He held her tight against him, suffocating in her lily-hair

Then, suffocating in nothing

Holding nothing

She was never there
