Love's Alchemy (New Poem)

"Love's Alchemy"

by Tim Kavi


cultures

clashed

but found

harmony

in the Tao

of their love



afterwards

happy tears

flowed

love's alchemy

had turned

iron into gold



your wings flew

me home

to you

your voice

was angel song

that brought

peace

between nations

in the night



as I held you

we were

vulnerable

and bare

but our love

covered us

there



in the

candle light

flags flew

but under

the sheets

there was only

Me and You.

Poet's brief comment: Another poem about external tensions being eased and redeemed by love. This poem is also about a moment of vulnerability and doubt in a relationship that contineus to be resolved by their deliberate turning to each other. You and Me is I and Thou.
