When you offered up your seeds
and I accepted them
we made something sacred
unknowingly perhaps
but still sensing the profundity of it
and expressing it in shaky whispers
with connotations far beyond what the actual situation
could possibly mean
we somehow transcended time and place
re-enacting an ancient and eternal ritual
of belonging and togetherness
mixing our essences
in the realm beyond rationality
where they form a bond
that asks no explanation
and offers none
