Into the Icy Unknown

I took you by the hand and led you down a beaten path…
A solitary ray of light to guide the way
Through an enchanting, captivating, ice-covered wood
Like a modern-day version of Lewis and Clarke
Onward to a riverbank where the ground sparkled like diamonds
In the pale moon light of the tranquil December sky
The glowing lights of the bright and alluring city life
Were painting a picture on the river’s swift current
The sweet sound of time standing still…
Just two warm breaths chilled by winter’s cool air
Mesmerized by what our eyes see before us
We venture onward in the lonely night
Discovering a shabby ship rope
The sense of adventure spiking within us
Enticing us to cross our very own Bridge to Terabithia
To a decayed, barely floating on a long-forgotten vessel
And our feet hit the dilapidated timber planks….
The harmonizing rhythm of two hearts .. ba-bum.. ba-bum.. ba-bum.. 
In anticipation of the icy unknown awaiting ahead
With finely tuned senses, we draw in a breath
And take a step of faith across the threshold
Suddenly elevated to a world unknown
A world consumed by memories lost departed long ago 
Into the serene and still beauty
A rusted, decomposed Terabithia…
 ….and we breathed life into it, into each other.

    Hullo, Shauna. It has been quite a while since I've read a new poem of yours. I see this poem as a new direction in your writing, and a very sound choice of direction at that, because this poem is stellar.
