A council between equals

One of our ceremony readings. The ceremony that we finished writing the first draft of last night. :-)

“Beyond What"
Alice Walker

We reach for destinies beyond
what we have come to know
and in the romantic hush
of promises
perceive each
the other's life
as known mystery.
Shared. But inviolate.
No melting. No squeezing
into One.
We swing our eyes around
as well as side to side
to see the world.

To choose, renounce,
this, or that--
call it a council between equals
call it love.

So perfect! I'm telling you, I'm going to have to copy everything you do when it's my turn :) And you know I love me some Alice Walker.

Maggie said...

You can't copy, silly... you have to find your own Alice Walker. :-)
