its course, elevating into the heavens the source of
passion, true meaning of why ink ever marries the
oh, to feel, to savor, to dance without care,
no reservation or concern for the how or the view,
just letting go to be into what it is we are into -
have you ever been in awe of a dream come true ?
everything you ever wished for no longer waiting for
you somewhere out there, but right in front of you,
staring you in the face, sharing the air that you
breathe every day, the one vision that used to fill so
many days and nights with unsatisfied meetings,
this one and that one eventually falling away as the
search continued over time and space,
knowing full well upon arrival that
this was the one, the one that is now here?
quick pinch myself!
check that i am awake!
yes, sweet prick upon the skin and with open eyes
find that you are here and so am i,
so now what?
i appear a novice fool,
stunned simply by a presence
for the first time since fresh fruits were
initially picked in orchards green,
feeling unsure about where the vines lead,
and as i approach the temple that is you,

from me, for it is she that fills every part of my being
with unsurmountable ecstasy.
for her i fly and sing,
approaching on bended knees
in worship of all i know as art in its highest form,
beauty, intellect and humor,
all is she whom i adore,
and thus with a tender caress of
her lips upon mine,
i release all that's been in reserve,
for compared to her there is nothing more.
