Do you sense a difference
Ecstasy draws me out of my ego,
my autonomous autumnal consciousness,
winter isolated awareness.
Enchantment draws me in.
More of a seduction,
maybe even curious
Ecstasy sounds louder,
and requires loss of ego-centered monopoly games
While enchantment may include promise
of all that bluster
yet adds the longer sunlight summer
before and after relationship
of seduced out
hypnotically co-empathic internal root induction,
promising integrity’s path of quieter seduction,
restoring internal becomings with external belongings
Yet to magically
on life’s Yang ecstatic
horizon of newborn
There’s political engagement
Then personal wedding
Then ego/ecopolitical re-engagement
of every spring through winter daily choices.
