Soul Recital

Soul Recital

It is a delicate dance to choreograph

this meeting of souls

First we peer cautiously across the expanse

of the universal ballroom floor

each stealing lingering glances

hoping to be caught

Pulled by the inexplicable connection

we cannot explain

that we are unable to leave unexplored

Carefully reaching out

clasping hands

the energy rushes home

my awareness forever expands

as mutual recognition

reignites the flame

so long split apart

a piece of us now resides

forever united

in a place we never knew we’d lost.

I love this us we’ve found.
