The One

When two close kindred meet What better than call a dance? ~William Butler Yeats

If we are fortunate, we find the “The One”, the mysterious one with whom we develop a connection, an interconnectedness in multiple dimensions – physical, emotional, intellectual, and spiritual. We find the one with whom the attraction is so powerful we cannot pull ourselves from them for a moment, our co-lead without whom we cannot envisage a life, we cannot envisage an existence without that person as a main character in the play of  our life, the protagonist and the antagonist on the stage of our world.If we are fortunate, we connect with the one person with whom we feel interconnected, the one person that perfectly fits the puzzle piece we need to complete our soul, the one person that makes us whole.If we are fortunate, we bump into that one person for whom we want to forsake all others, for whom all others become devoid of color and disappear into a misty morning fog, that one person with whom we feel loved so deeply we cannot fathom an existence without the person at our side as we navigate this crazy, insane, joyous journey that is life.

If we are fortunate, we encounter that one person and we take a long walk, a never ending walk that outlasts a lifetime yet feels like it’s over in the a bright flash of lightning cutting the sky to shreds in the dead of night. We take that walk and never look back because a journey without the person is just a plodding, lonely march through a barren desert devoid of life.

If we are fortunate, we stumble upon that one person who we love completely and makes us feel completely loved. We find that one person who transforms a heart as dry and barren as a desert into a vast sea of color, a desert populated when the suns rays melt, seep into the ground, and emerge as a rainbow of ephemeral flowers each attended by a jeweled hummingbird with feathers sparkling in the sunshine, hummingbird wing beats become the murmured song of our heartbeat.

If we are extremely fortunate, we find that lightning can strike the heart twice.
