Through the Lens of Love

We've focused fondly,
eyes to sighs,

while crowds around us
blurred away.

Now, through love's lens,
we realize

(beyond the sharpness
of the fray)

what waits outside
of optics, sense,

and circles of
confusing light,

where timelessness
dissolves all tense:

eternal truths,
divine insight,

as everything
zooms into view

--potentials through
the multiverse,

from quarks and stars
to worlds diverse.

There, we are cosmic,
love come true.
