The ABC’s of Love

This poem was prompted by the #ALTwiculate Word of the Day: abecedarian (meaning “alphabetically arranged”)

The ABC’s of Love

  After
Beneath a willow
Centuries old
Dare I speak the truth
Evoking insecurity
Fear of the future
Giving way to love
Holding our destiny

 In our hearts
Jewels of revelation
Knowing so much or so
Little
Mysterious meanings
Now is the time
Of dreams, of
Powerful longing

 Questioning the
Rest of our lives
Sensing the possibilities
Testing the answers
Unearthing the realities
Validating our feelings
Which one cleaving
Xenolithically, into the other? You

 Yearning to be cleaved, with
Zen-like acceptance: Me
