Sacred Contracts XXXVI: Giving

The Universe spins Us              
favorably from yesterday                
to a future of modern Poetry                
               
Discarding end-stopped lines                
opening higher harmonics to               
an anatomy of free-versed bone                  
               
We've trod syntactical fragments                
maneuvering impossibile nouns                
Resisted extraneous adjectives                
draining strength from sounds                
               
We look beyond glass houses                
into space between our stars                
a black depth interfacing                
the double-helix of two lives                
               
I've absorbed more watching You                
than listening to others showed                
I've found Truth in your actions                
over lies in their promised vows                
               
The one thing I've learned                
the biggest Truth of all, is that          
beauty isn't in perfect health          
nor provisional for Love                
           
But upon the deathbed of a stray                
which tests our heart in Faith                
               
As the poor widow who gave                
those two measly mites                
sacrificing all she had                
for the greater good of Life                
               
Not for any potential return                
but to merely Love instead                
as You giving all you have                
to strays without a chance                
               
But what you may not realize                
in your sole quest to provide                
is not all strays are animals                
but humans, such as I                
               
who learned to Trust once again               
through your willing sacrifice                
not for any potential return            
but to merely Love instead              
               
         
~                
               
               
               
               
For J . . . the most compassionate man I've ever  
known or will Love and Trust in this Lifetime  💜                
               
Finished exactly @11:11
