Crossing Over

consummation of a first-love relation.

 
 
 
At sixteen
and a few more years,
when her sweet scent eased imposing glow,
and entwined fingers pulled in acquiescence,
there occurred that watershed moment
when absorbing wick, destined to saturate,
laid claim to Life’s precious nectar,
and the taut brain, unable to exit,
fused it onwards and inwards,
banishing forever the slow atrophy
of archaic innocence.
 
As natural
as the years were mature,
in a green hollow in an ancient wood,
two crossed that signposted Rubicon, from
callow and insular to profoundly empathic
leaving all kindred embrace in their wake,
and, though fated to go separate ways,
from that noble moment on,
found beauty, joy, sadness, and pain
in the passion and perfection
of a bird song.

culture and the arts fully, one must have experienced intensive,
requited and consummated, passionate erotic love, and presumably
more so if ending in painful failure).

Organised religion cannot contain all there is to know in our beings which is why I see spirituality in its purest form in the dance of creation. “though fated to go separate ways,… Read more »

Mind. Blown. A powerful twio stanza epic enriched by the explanations to each stanza.
