Propose – Word of the Day

Would You?

All at once the world collides
a quantum of leap
in a valley of lush spring,
the Eiffel Tower
subsumes to fish and chips
by the narrow creek,
a longing beyond language
a fragile knowing,
the universe
but also the mundane
of the everyday of ever year
without fail,
the most ordinary thing
in an extraordinary way
forever before,
and after much more,
holding breath as if
holding the universe accountable,
such weight
released in a humble
and ordinary lumiere,
would you,
will you,
lie with me
till the dawn of time?
