Soul Vacation

Christiane and Lilli at Prospect Park, Diana Instant+

Sometimes
you need a soul
vacation.  
You need the meal
you can't get back home,
the dessert that is drizzled
with love,
the afternoon breeze
that reminds you of
Jerusalem
in winter.  

Sometimes
it's enough to be
together, as if you've
been side-by-side
from the beginning.
Enough to bring forth
a future 
conceived by dreams,
enough to return you
to your heart's own
holy city.
