Boarding Olympus

It is said all
DNA is unique
To the individual
But looking back
On the thousand foot
Double helix
My lover and I
Carved through silky powder
While floating
Past a sunset
Volcano god
Lost in a wind-swept vapor
Turned neon blood cast
From the spear tips
Of countless pines

I can’t help thinking
We have created life
In a memory so surreal
It cannot be shared
Explained or understood
And it couldn’t be conceived
Without knowing the other
Also served
As witness to the birth
Of this moment’s
Intertwining strand
Unique to two
