So I want to get to know you slowly, gently - with no promises of tomorrow. I want to unfold like wild flowers that only bloom by the changing light of the moon. Quietly, mysteriously, with no need to arrive for anyone else - existing just as we are, bathed in midnight.

There is no way to predict upon which lands we will build our shelters,

or which waters will fill our wells and bathe our babes.

 

Try as we might to rearrange the stars or meddle with our tea leaves,

all we serve is to bring laughter to the lips of Fate,

and the planets continue their orbits.

We remember the obstinance that filled our blood when those who gave up told us we should be responsible and realistic, and give up, too. We remember what it felt like to be sleepless for the passion, the excitement, the anticipation of chasing what our hearts wanted so, so badly. We remember.
