Am I asking for this dialogue that is unfolding in my head;
in the situations between the players both within and without my bed?
How about the dancing partners throughout the seasons to which I am wed?
In each case, I am being asked only to be patient, kind and grace-full.
I would be waste-full if I threw away any one of these given to me;
each one is the moment of my encounter with our Go-d G-od Eternity,
which I am asked to learn to appreciate so at the hour of death
I might see It again most clearly.
So, I embrace you all my loving consorts, albeit peripherally;
and I am forever the wanderer where I remain alone and
yours sincerely, prayerfully.
