Gitanjali *

( After Rabindranath Tagore )      
For the life is in the blood.**    
From an early age, I'd an aversion to blood-    
pooling plates from the rarity of steaks;    
tinged lips bathing in the carmine river      
of conquered meat between teeth    
By teenage years, I understood blood;    
it struck chords within my solar plexus—    
a many-pointed star of immense knowledge    
resonating amid a lost recollection of Love      
Nothing ever dies: it survives in crawlspaces    
of life, beneath the skin of each birth;    
its ichor passed down from generations—    
awakening within the proximity of itself    
We do not choose those we truly love—    
only what we receive from each offering;    
we celebrate a reunion of joy—    
or, suffer the agony of letting go    
Walk onward in this world. . .    
yet, such recalls are not only human    
They're loyalty between a bear and wolf—    
unlikely pairs whose alliance is forged    
by unexplainable phenomenon beyond      
our homo sapient reasoning: bonding    
between a kitten and duck; a dog and fox—    
because the soul knows what a mind forgets;      
blood is the life, the mechanism of flesh      
fueling every sentient being on earth      
It is no mystery to preceive one another    
after death;  your sub-conscious waits    
rather than settles for less; it's innate—      
instinctual when honed by life after life      
and could never be explained in words—    
only felt within its vast array of cells;    
those immortal red and white messengers      
carrying eternal scrolls of ancestors—    
crusades of experience and Love    
registered in our own blood    
each time one rediscovers the other      
wearing whatever chosen form
