Our Love, Grown Wild

Eternity flowed deftly through the last five years
enfolding in her stream eight with whom we
contemplated Knowledge and Mortality
Looking back, we ponder amazed at love among friends,
..........it blossoms fragrant, as gentle
..........as a dewy rose among thorns and thistles
We thrash and crawl and climb
..........puzzling
..........over the sea and fire that stalks us
Our hearts, cupped in one another’s hands
..........like castanets, beat in unison
Our measured moments grave lines in phantom fears,
..........they seem real and float like cumulus above us
In words of jade, we speak elegies and encomiums
Our smiles mask our sorrows and yearning
Our laughter is love grown wild
We see each other in a thousand shapes and dreams
..........and in nameless names
Our sighs ride the ebb tides of Eternity
.....Another moment:
.....and “even the sun shall die”
.....but our lotus song will echo on ....
..........We have lived! We have loved!
