Ankh

You've always folded        
oxygen into bones        
formed arterial roadways          
from minute corpuscles;        
organisms of vertebrates        
historical constituents       
basic particles of matter          
         
Once We knew of Ankh        
the lock it unrolled;        
alphabets of Wisdom        
tattoed across papyrus          
         
Meaning was Ours to own        
chronicles of knowledge        
         
Lifetimes and remembrance          
embossed upon retinas          
shifting recall; altered DNA        
double-helixed coil of memory          
archived in the annals of Us          
         
The crack of conception;        
Holy unction, communion          
from Spirit to bronzed flesh          
onyx'd eyes colored reflection          
         
We drank one from the other's        
presence; marked remembrance        
         
We knew then          
what we grasp to know now      
         
What was it we didn't have to say        
through settling sun and dust        
no more than 10 feet between Us  
 
wasn't it . . .  
 
Love never forgets  
the image of Itself
