My Example

Union (Triquint)

How’d you happen to start loving me?
I speculate that maybe
reciprocity
sets us free.
How?

Each one supporting the other’s chi,
manifests duality;
reciprocity
sets us free.
now.

When two souls merge, their reality
makes strong singularity,
reciprocity
sets us free.
Wow!
