Jasmine and Jim: Runaway Slaves, 1851

I see your dreams clearly

reflected in mine whenever

sunlight parts the clouds...

still strong, undaunted

by our struggle to love

and live as we should.

And when the dark hours

allow us to blend into the night,

I feel you

jogging beside me,

resisting the winds that would

scatter our hopes,

unafraid of the journey

that shall one day set us free!
