She likes what his hands do:
he opens up her sterile soil
and seeds it with beauty.

Her eyes feel the water and the Lotus Flowers
beneath her feet, longing for ponds
full of Kois and eternity, crying out for
those unspoken things she finds
in him, in his enchanted mandalas when
his gentleness makes her delicate mirrored soul
sleep and dream.
(She is safe with him)

His voice reverberates:
She hears the pensive petals, the crowns diving
in the cold wind, the starry night as
the black silence waits outside.

He is a soul so rare.

She opens the window
and he is there, sewing wings
on the heels of her shoes, inviting
her to follow his muse.

She likes what his hands do.

Koi is a fish. The Japanese recognized these fish not just for their beauty, but for their ability to transform the observer into otherworldy states of perception. These altered states of perception ultimately lead to the attraction of high energy - and this manifests in the form of prosperity of all kinds in our lives.

They also represent perserverance in adversity and strength of purpose. In Japanese culture the strongest Koi swim upstream and leap into the mists to become Water Dragons. The Koi represents determination and not conforming to what society expects. Swimming against the current, courage and obtaining a higher goal.
