Love called me
to the center of myself,
inviting me to join her
for the greatest adventure of all.
Hesitating at first,
but at last seduced and secured
by curiosity’s allure,
I tossed in my chips and
awaited Love’s next play.
Watching me closely, she smiled,
took my hand, and to my surprise,
transported us back to the very spot
where I had first heard her call.
This is sacred ground, she said.
This is where
our adventure begins.
