Attraction, engaged.

Love is radial by concept.

We circle and view,

Or take notice of,

Or simply notice.

Then move round aģàin.

We do not pass on.

We will not pass on this.

We fix our eyes

As do the raptors.

And aim our attention

To fully, to fully absorb

And delight.

Attraction, engaged.

This person is outstanding.

They possess traits

And these traits are pleasing.

And the eye of the Falcon

Is not deceived.

We circle and view,

Or take notice of,

Or simply notice.

Then move round again

With a second take.

And the motion is strong,

But the heart is weak.

And the head feels

One sided, and it is.

Then there is a scent.

A delicate note.

Later there will be

A dilligent recall,

In the minds eye

A recalling of images.

And a longing

And a hope.

Then a sense of abscence.

A re-enactment.

Over and over.

We do not pass on.

We will not pass on this.

We fix our eyes

As do the raptors.

And aim our attention

To fully, to fully absorb

And delight.

Attraction, engaged.

And the eye as a voice would,

Asks “Who is this”?

We circle and view.

And the quiet voice,

Your inner voice,

At once sings,

“Who am I to feel like this”?

Somewhere a knot begins

To shape itself, it neads and forms,

To taken on the likeness of a heart.

Now refreshed,

We circle and view,

Or take notice of,

Or simply notice.

Then move around and around.

We do not pass on.

We have as yet

No power of speech.

We circle and view,

And will not loose focus.

Watching ourselves

We fall.

This is deeply

And madley

Love.
