"We pass the word around; we ponder how the case is put by different people, we read the poetry; we meditate over the literature; we play the music; we change our minds; we reach an understanding. Society evolves this way, not by shouting each other down, but by the unique capacity of unique, individual human beings to comprehend each other." - Lewis Thomas

The Lovers

Two Lovers engtangled in eternity
Through concord and broken harmony.

Through the shadows of time
They lost one another, bound to search.

Eager souls eroding away
From each wave, each new era.

Lovers pulled apart by life
Longing to sleep in each others arms.

Desire and dreams hold the tides of time
As civilizations fall, lovers stand tall.

Their bodies ache for one another
Longing for the touch of the other.

Words resonate inside their heads
It is through each breath the other feels.

Souls bound to one another
Seeking their shattered harmony.

From love they stem
Their story extending time and space.

Her touch and her voice
His strength and his embrace.

Elegance since the beginning of time.
That longing within all.

From words to desires to dreams
A lasting love
Two souls across time
Torn apart by circumstance,
With each word
The are pulled together
Empty vessels
Seeking one another
From the beginning
And until the end.
Love eternal.

"During the darkest times we are ignorant the light and the beauty that attempts to break through the grey cloud covers. During the brightest of times we are blind to the darkest shadows that lurk in the corners." Authors note 24

  1. That was exquisitely beautiful. The way you see the world, the emotional intricacies, the patterns and rhythms, senses and space. I am in awe. Just beautiful!
