The Universe Wants An Us

It’s not you or me, really
It’s the stars, the poles
of magnets, the hands
of the gods, the three Sisters of Fate

Well, sometimes it’s only you
And, sometimes it’s only me

But also, the tides of love, the gravitational
pull of celestial spheres, chemistry and chemicals,
hormones and synapses, butterflies and that winged boy with arrows,
pen and paper, tea leaves and tarot cards, and
social influencers, bloggers, rebels, dreamers, lovers

See, really, it’s not up to you or me

Because if the universe wants an us
Who are we to go against the universe?

    Have to agree with my pal (and yours) up there. :)) πŸ‘ŒπŸ‘πŸ™ The grand conductor works in mysterious ways. And the force is strong in this one…😊

      Exactly!! πŸŽ‰πŸ™Œ Ben, not sure if you know this, sometimes you reply to the post not to the comment itself; I’ve seen this around WP, usually happens for mobile users (including me when I’m using my phone)… but in those cases the original commenter will not get notified that you replied. So some of your other readers will have (had) the same phenomenon. If you “like” their comment(s) they may check back though… Just fyi. :))

  4. Absolutely agree with your sentiments in the poem Benjamin…. Wonderful flow of words. He has his plans for us 😊🌷
