By J Ann Crowder

We spend our lives longing for touch and kinship
Most of all love
Alone in a cosmic universe, spinning on an axel of infinite time
We long for conversation’s meaning
For a nod, a smile, or a soft affirmation in another's eyes
We crave validation
A dual thought
A questioning of life, together
We stand in wonderment, together
Sharing our experience
Longing for the same
Love’s pure proclamation
Universal truth
Eternal windows
Ethereal wonder
A sacred connection
Unifying life
Creating one heart from many
In this, we are no longer alone

I must say, poets connect in more ways than one. It's universal as well. Further I must say that you read my mind. Last night I started a poem along the same line as yours. Not quiet the same but a longing for love and eternity- a life extended, our souls into new lives. Much like the sustaining energy that the stars, the universe, give us.
This one, yours, says it all. Love + fave. Thank you Jennifer.
