This weekend my wife and I celebrate our twelfth wedding anniversary. To honor the occasion I thought I’d share a little poem I wrote for her while we were dating.


One day I decided to leap
away from the Earth,
abandon caution
and walk on the stars.

Gravity tried to push me back
but I broke through
and rode a comet
to the edge of the universe.

There I met you
and knew I’d found heaven.


Jen and me in 1998.

Writer, traveler, photographer, hiker, film/TV addict, amateur chef, casual gamer, and occasional tennis & saxophone player . . . in real life I do web design.
