S HE IS THIRTY, I\u2019M SIXTY

She is thirty, I\u2019m sixty,
A world of thirty is between us;
She is a just blossoming
flower, I\u2019m the withering dried
fruit.

She is sweet, golden nectar,
I\u2019m hard, fibrous to taste;
She is luscious, lustrous to sight,
I\u2019m dull, dark shadow of the past.

She is sparkling golden
sunshine, I\u2019m the dusk of the
setting sun;
She is full bloom, she is full moon,
I\u2019m the disk of shriveling new
moon.

She is pure gold, I\u2019m mere steel,
How thirty and sixty can ever
match? She is live flame, I\u2019m dying
flame,
How twain can meet in the same hearth?

Thirty and thirty do make sixty,
But sixty can never add to
thirty;
But strange are the ways of cosmic
maths, Thirty and sixty here add to thirty.

She steered herself thro\u2019 the space of age
And docked her ship to my dying
module; She gave me boost, injected
fuels,
I took off to new worlds on her promise.

A subtle long chord across the age
Bound us tight to intimate bond,
Like milk and honey, we dissolved there
To fulsome broth of love and solace.

No discords we found, no disconcerts, No
mismatch anywhere because of age; Like
fragrance to blossoms, lyrics to music, We
matched the other in our soul and body.

She yearned for me, I longed for her, But barriers of age did set us apart;

We waited in patience for opportune break
While bonded inseparably in soul and mind.

While slow though steady is nature\u2019s
process, We fell and rose in time\u2019s uneven
tides
And hopes and distresses seized in turns;
But we bore all assaults for each other\u2019s sake.

She is thirty, I\u2019m sixty,
A world of thirty is between us;
But strange are the ways of cosmic
maths, Thirty and sixty here add to thirty.

I whispered, she must seek reason

And abandon sixty for the rhyme of thirty:
Thirty and thirty do make sixty,
But sixty can never add to
thirty.

She frowned at those discreet
thoughts, Derisively disowned all I
said;
Thirty and sixty are for normal worlds,
We, she said, far transcend normal world.

I happily moved on her delicious
stream, Sixty does adding to thirty in
souls;
We were conjoined in dreams and spirit,
But, alas, in worlds, as far as ever we
were

As time stretched, patience wore, Impatient
we were to meet and conjoin; Nothing
comes out of nothing in this world,
Decided we to take bull by its horns.

Destiny favors those dare to do,
And we decided to dare and resolutely do;
Opportune break we saw while we met
In most inviting sweet solitude.

I yearned to absorb her and hide in
soul, She longed to enthrone me in her
soul; We stretched arms to encircle the
other,
Our souls, minds, bodies inseparably fused.

We grew to one, penetrating the other,
