This One's For All The Lovers Out There
Running, slipping and sliding, panting and finally dropping down onto a soft carpet of grass. I'd escaped the 5th House on the block! I almost wished for a pool into which I could jump and cleanse myself.
Letting the sun fill me up, I finally looked around. It was beautiful here. And there was laughter. Turning toward the sound, I saw them; a couple standing arm in arm, not at all conscious of anything but each other. I might have felt like a voyeur, except I was transfixed by the depth of feeling that radiated from them and from this whole place.
The young lovers were standing in front of a tree, one which seemed to have two very separate halves, melded together. Her side was an apple tree, abundant with bright red fruit, and his side was a tall, sturdy Oak, leaves fully formed, and magnficient. She was radiant, her beautiful dark tresses cascading down over her body; and he, attentive to her, a tenderness that spoke of adoration, and devotion.
On her side of the tree, I noticed, far off, a small cabin, and beyond, just above the peaks, two hawks (eagles? ravens?). Her right hand was held aloft, palm face up, and a full moon, rising in the sky, seeming to hover just above her hand. Likewise, on his side, the setting sun, still brilliant, appeared to be poised just above his palm. Where the trees were fused together, a bright light shone through, showering the world with warmth. I noticed two butterflies danced beside him and surrouinding them was a sacred circle only for Lovers. It was as if they were in their own world where only love existed, and nothing from the outside touched them.
There was a pathway which lead down the hill into a valley beyond, where a river meandered away toward the mountains.
I considered the contrast between where I'd just come from, and into the realm where I now lounged upon the lush lawn. I thought about this journey I'd begun, and realized that this was the essential foundation from which all learning had to commence; that to reach higher levels of knowledge, love must be the guide, and that each of us is one half of a whole, where dwelling within the land of love, each partner learned about the other. The fullness of life cannot be attained with the missing piece that is love; both physical and emotional. For the Lovers, their time together will be transforming, merging the energies of both genders, to form a perfect whole.
