PLAY IT AGAIN, SAM

Here we are...back--
at same place we've not been.
Our connection powerful,
with fresh newness--
Ummm, known so well

For first time again
we meet,
like same, 
like never before
always familiarly different
yet always familiar.

Two paths joining--
twining incessantly 
yet paralleled
crossing infrequently,
crossing, linking,
intersecting, 
many times

Together, apart.   
Sweet, gentle strength!
Back......we.

--Steveroni

    1. Tolerance I did not "see". Was thinking more of:

      Right now, right here, this moment is Eternity. The past has been deleted. Whatever today brings, sadness, tragedy, or happenings of radiant happiness...accept, live, ENJOY!
      ...and I believe you are in that realm of life, Felisol.
      Love and PEACE!

    1. Wondered. Why would someone declare "I AM an oxymoron"?
      Then I went to your page(s). YEP! There I found THREE pages, written by three Peeps, each SO different, almost opposite. But the three Peeps are all...............YOU!
      No longer wondering.
      I don't have time for ONE blog post.
      Keep Up The Good Work (KUTGW!)
