thus far as we have made it

sigh of butterfly - tickle of flower

perfume of heaven's design

waltzing flowers...broken stems

all is beauty all around

to learn caressing without crushing?

uniqueness oneness embracing

drinking same water same air

planting seeds consuming birthing...dying

aquarian-agers finding magic

in the moment time never wasted thinking planning

doing  happening somewhere inbetween

"Bet Middler" - "Mother Theresa"

"Ghandi" - "Robin Williams"

the end of the war between sexes?

stay no longer in a space

that is not

your heart's desire
