Haiku for Passion

So, passion beholds

Its object as a perfect

Unit. And the soul 

Thus is embodied.

And the body so ensouled. 

The lovers take heart 

In the remembered image 

Of the true other.

Does that other see 

The same star, the same melting 

Cloud, read the same book, 

Or yet feel the same 

Emotion that now delights 

Me with such beauty?
(In the words of Ralph Waldo Emerson)
