Sonnet to your soul

Apple#487 on Valentine's Day

This one is for you, Luca.

It takes a double miracle for me

to see your soul; for both you and I must

move off our routine paths for it to be

revealed: a moment’s pause will be enough,

as our eyes meet, to share your burning bush.

Or will our busy lives’ distractions fill

our days and nights: our unremitting rush

forfeiting that which matters most of all?

All that counts is this: that I love you

and you love me. So, when some divine spark

ignites your passion, lift your head; gaze through

your lovedeep eyes to seek me in the dark.

Reveal that now’s the time to step aside,

and we’ll unite, and both will come alive.
