DC Poets: Denise Folwell

In Goreme

Sitting on an outcropping of rock
Protected by the shade of a small tree
We belonged so precisely to the solid earth
And the distant volcanic mountains
To the hot, cloudless sky

While everything claimed its perfection
And inner and outer somehow merged
I disappeared a little while

With you
