Don't Hesitate

The soul is the softest
form of earth, and earth
is the mother of the soul.
The purpose of every caress
is to blend her element
with fire.
Don't hesitate.
Mix soil with air
through an inhalation of wonder.
As for your tears,
mingle them with dust.
Your lover is
waiting to be created
from that fructifying mud.
Your touch
shapes the silence
of wild expectation.
Here is the Mystery:
we are two, not one.
Here is the Grace:
we meet, we dance,
we dissolve
in love.
