Lovers Beyond Time

Time – the distance between us.
Distance – the time it takes to meet.
Love – transcendence of separation.
And there we met,
Dancing our life to each other,
A courtship display
Subtle and beautiful.
Courtship –
The discovery of each other.
Bonding –
The marriage of separates
Into an active connection.
Love –
The alchemical power
To transform.
You and I –
The crucibles of change
In a joyous and painful
Then suddenly
The fire melting
The previous forms.
The liquid pouring
Into each other.
Then stillness.
Holy and secret penetration
As two become one.
And light bursts out
Of this new being,
Shining into the world.
