A Symbol Of Life-Giving Love


My sweetheart is here with me, lying in
the grass with Rudi next to me, my head
on his chest, his arms encircling me,
chewing young stalks while listening to
him, his voice a song in my ears, telling
of dreams – a sanctuary for marine life
and the fishes of the sea, a big, white
house next to it so he can come home
for lunch and be with me, I tell him my
dream of a post at the university, lecturing
and exciting talks, he listens to me with
delight in his eyes, his face becomes the
image of paradise, when I kiss him, earthly
love becomes a sweet allegory of the spiritual
ties between him and me, when he touches
me, the sublime becomes a quickening pulse
and the adrenaline changes us into a new
kind of being, strong in a feeling that explodes
unto heaven in a swirling vortex of creative
energy - until we regain consciousness in
a new dimension, as we put on our clothes,
we have become a divine allegory, a symbol
of life-giving love binding our souls to eternity…

Poem of the Day

poet Alfred Lord Tennyson

It little profits that an idle king,
By this still hearth, among these barren crags,
Match'd with an aged wife, I mete and dole
Unequal laws unto a savage race,
