Love Among Equals

(Cereus - desert cactus - takes 3 to 5 years to have its first flower - blooms once a year thereafter - flower opens at night giving off a lovely strong scent to attract night flying insect - dies by next sunrise)

"Love Among Equals"
(written at age 16)

* * * * *

Love, like a dove,
flutters, to search out an equal.
If, on it's long journey,
it raises its head,
no matter how slight the error be,
the bird, the dove,
no longer love,
but envy.

And if, on its long journey,
it lowers its head,
no matter how slight the error be,
the bird, the dove,
no longer love,
but pity.
