From the very beginning you seduced us,
and with the sense of being incomplete.
You seduced us by so easily demonstrating
not one, but two amazing pregnancies,
and you are so clever and subtle
(skills imperative for a master seductress)
because you came as one irresistible.
Surely, no mother can resist to embrace
and nurture a young, vulnerable infant.
And the seduction continues beyond what we recognize,
as naked bodies caress,
as beauty cannot avoid seeping
(and often pouring out) through nature,
as you accompany us in our darkness,
and as you unceasingly invite us to more
than we appreciate.
