“Imagine Me” (Notes From the Visiting Yankee – by JoLynn Wells)

Imagine Me

By JoLynn Wells

Imagine me a river

With an inlet just for two

Where grass grows green and lithe

And small stones wait for tossing

Imagine me a cozy island

With salt imprinted in our hair

Where laughter giggles throughout the day

And teeth glint like diamonds in the sun

Imagine me an igloo

With breath white in purple gray light

Where our hoods of fur join hands

And damp noses nuzzle each other

Imagine me a field

With birds dancing among the flowers

Where smiles are sprinkled with dandelions

And Pan prances and plays his pipe

Imagine me a beach

With sand clinging to our toasted skin

Where flesh is warm and hearts warmer

And toes dance between the grains

Imagine me a treehouse in the rain

With trap doors to save us from the pelting drops

Where floorboards creak and dampen

And water slides into our smiling kisses

Imagine you beside me

Where wishes turn true

Imagine you beside me

And imagine me alongside you
