Souls

laying here beside me
arms wrapped tight and round
I can hear your dreaming
your breath and every sound

I can smell your kisses
from very far away
like whispers in the night sky.
our lips locked there to stay

souls that crash together
locked in dreams of love
catches from the heavens
so far below the above

I wrote this poem on October 23rd, 1998, and as I was re-reading it today, I truly struggled with the last line, it felt like a stretch and did not make any sense at all; “so far below the above”? What does that mean? But then I remembered an experimental picture I took many years ago (April 15th, 2013 to be exact!) and realized how incredibly perfect a fit it is.

How did I take this picture? It is one single image, not photoshopped. I used a prism and my iPhone and held it up to the lens, which in turn flipped the sky and the ground and eliminated the middle from view. The blending of the top and bottom was all natural due to the reflections in the glass.

Looking for more amazing poems by writers on medium? I recently came across a poem by Once twirled called “The Heart Wringer” and was immediately drawn to the title. I highly recommend it! Find more at “Write Under The Moon.

Author Note: Thank you for making it to the bottom! Give yourself a clap or two or, fifty!
