I ask my heart , Why do you keep looking
for the delights of love?
I hear the answer back, Why will you not join me
in this companionship?
This is the conversation of being a human being,
the living doubleness,
Cool and in motion like water,
placed and passionate like fire,
Subtle as wind, yet obvious
as a wine glass poured to the brim,
Spilled over and drunk down
all at once for a toast.
Like rain, you make any image more vivid.
Like a mirror, you can be trusted to hold beauty
