You are! I am.
by Radko Vacek
Age Group: Adult
You are the chimes, dancing in the wind,
Making the music of the dance.
I am the water, flowing quietly
Through the floodplain beneath you.
I mix with the soil to make the mud.
You are the thunderhead,
Discharging the charge of your gray matter.
I am the cotton ball of a cloud,
Drifting through the blue of high noon,
Unheard and hardly seen.
You are the hummingbird,
Humming with your wings, hovering.
I am the aphid, sucking
The sap of the honeysuckle.
Your hum sounds thunderously loud!
You are the lion, with all his pride,
Whose roar is heard for miles around.
In my quietness, I am the lamb,
Of that fact neither ashamed nor proud.
That is just the way I am.
Could we love the sounds of music
Without the silence between the notes?
Could we praise the glory of the sunrise
Without the darkness of the night?
These are the sound and the light of spells!
You or I, your flaw or mine,
Spelling makes all the difference,
And all the difference in the spell.
You or I, what the difference it makes,
As in, to love or not to love.
Okay, I gave you a birthday card,
But like you? No! You're this! You're that!
Wait! I'm not enchanting!
I can't enchant without proper spelling.
Try using, I, not, you; put it this way,
“I, being selfless enough, love you,
And therefore can really serve you!”
Love is magic worked,
Not by the misspelling of a "you",
As in, "You're this and that",
But using "I" in its place:
“I can serve you because
I love you.” Love does not respond
To the lovable, but rather sees
Lovingly enough to overlook flaws.
Where love is not, the flaw is mine,
Lacking eyes to see it as divine.
