    Love's Rushing In

    Traveling at 186,000 miles per second
    is the light in the night from Lightning
    which blasts the molecules of air apart
    to create a vacuum most frightening.
    But it's not heated air being pushed apart
    that makes that clamorous din.
    After Lightning has struck
    and the vacuum collapses,
    Thunder is the air rushing in.

    And two X-chromosomes lie waiting alive
    in the female egg with grace
    for the first sperm penetrating its membrane
    bringing spark for a Life to embrace.
    If an X sperm is first, it will be a girl.
    If a Y, it's a boy to win.
    and it's not your choice or mine but God's,
    that Gender is the sperm rushing in.

    When one Heart is enraptured by another
    and they both hold their breaths in the night
    and the vacuum between them draws closer
    for one Heartbeat at the speed of Light,
    all Thunder then heard at the speed of Sound
    on a whisper of air so thin
    at 1129 ft per second
    is the blast of Love rushing in.

    You are truly a skillful writer
    with an immaculate ability
    to take words, metaphors,
    images and the mind of your
    reader to places...that consistently
    exceed my expectations...

    Love reading you...
    Loved this poem...

    Much, much luv poet,
    Sage
