It sits out there demanding attention
Like the ghost of Christmas to come, showing me visions of dread
All my thoughts displayed on a Vaudeville stage for the amusement of others
A tug of war, it pulls itself further out, taking me with it
The seductive Mistress of fear and desire knows all
I pull back. No ! I won’t go with you!
This wine and cheese taste good !
The Sun is shining, the flowers in bloom
Trees, their branches stretched up to the heavens
Receive the energy for life, no questions of tomorrow
Your love and touch ground me to today, all my questions calmed
Today you are with me, tomorrow you will be with me…
By Dante, dedicated to my love Daevina.
