Poetic License: ‘Valentine’s Day, 2001: A Love Odyssey’

Our journey began in another century,

In another millennium – in some other world

A monolith sang the music of the spheres,

And here on earth two of its creatures woke

From dimness to discovery of each other,

Opening wide a separate universe

To live inside each other opening wide

A separate universe to live inside …

Inhabitants inhibited the moon:

We traveled through its eye of love to stars

And quantum leaps instantly infinite

Created for us a special space and time

Far from the HALlmark hype, the diamond heart,

The unopened box of chocolates left behind.
