I asked Bigbad if there had been one quality in a spouse he was seeking, what quality did I have that filled his entire cup. He said "wisdom." Wow. *blink. blink* What a powerful charge.

We reach for destinies beyond
what we have come to know
and in the romantic hush
the other's life
as known mystery.
Shared. But inviolate.
No melting. No squeezing
We swing our eyes around
as well as side to side
to see the world.
To choose, renounce,

call it a council between equals
call it love.
