Day 18 of 40: Exchange

Day 18 of 40: Exchange

Kneeling,
Half an apple in each palm;
One for you, one for me:
This is how it works.

Because I love you
My world comes alive.
Because I love you
Your beauty is everywhere.

And I know:
Your beauty is my beauty;
Your boundlessness is my boundlessness;
Your life is my life.

These half-apples
I offer in exchange,
So that two worlds can meet as one.
Nothing is offered, nothing is received;
Our communion is inexpressibly perfect.
