Love at first Sight

Hello stranger
tie your shoe
lets go for a walk.

With your hand ‘round my fingers
of vibrations we’ll go,
laughing nonsense songs
to the moon we’ll go,
feeling deep into
earthen jugs we’ll go,
falling silently into
tumbling cataracts
we will go you and I.

Before the night is done
we will have exhausted the wind,
swept meadow and mossy banks
with incense,
we will have turned protoplasm
into skyscrapers,
opened a mote around the highest castle,
breached the dialectic
and announced the known.
Before the night is done
we will have animated the inevitable
you and I.

When we return
we will lie upon water lilies
and wonder at our wonder.
With one hand dipped within the pool
we'll watch the ever ripple-circles
moving towards infinity.

This requires three or four close readings to fully get the richness of it, so again I must ask your permission to print this my friend! Can I come lie on the water lilies too? - What a fantastic image.
