From The First

 

From The First (Randyjw; July 30, 2018)

 

I can understand

Why man tries in good measure

to sublimate the senses

from the experiences of their pleasures

For in abundance

there is a deadening

an insatiable hunger

jaded and desensitizing

I, myself,

am a simple woman

A shout-it-from-the-rooftops

type of person

I often wonder

Could we be together

without needing to talk,

ever

To be content

hand-in-hand

On our walk

arm-in-arm

I think I could

And I think I could

transform

since G-d made two of the one

both the trumpeter- –

and the mute- – swan

But your wanderlust

and your creativeness

might dim

And all swans must take

to the wing

But they always

have a reckoning

And a remembering

of Gan Eden
