To meet in meditation

To meet in meditation
is probably as close as it gets

That space of thought and longing
is beyond where any mortal lover you ever lets

Because therein lives and stirs
the longing of the spirit
the longing behind them all

Nothing can be more close
and real and vivid
and once fulfilled, it stops the fall

And you fall beyond winter
which springs into bloom and summer

And your heart extends to every other
to every king, to every bummer
