Haikus for Lovers

I read a very powerful blog today by Nightflower. I thought of all the people I have met in SL, all the stories I have heard and read. It’s raining outside in my RL, I am physically a little under the weather today, and I found my mind drifting in 5-7-5. No titles, no identifications, other than saying that the first one is for Nightflower.  Otherwise – if it fits – you are welcome to it.

But you are NOT me!
Your facade betrayed my grief,
Imprisoned my pain.

.                                               Snared by your dark light
.                                               we have nothing in common
.                                               My wings work in vain.

I know your secrets
your past history, your friends
so glad I am yours.

.                                                    Official partners!
.                                                    You brighten my SL life
.                                                    My joy spreads to all.

Turn-about is fair!
Sometimes I lead, sometimes you
But pleasure always!

.                                                     Mysterious one
.                                                     Showed me possibilities
.                                                     then you disappeared.

Inworld but rarely
yet my heart partnered with yours
joy when you are here.

.                                                     We weathered the storm
.                                                     Our love deeper than ever
.                                                     We complete our selves.

Love should equal joy
But often love hurts, frustrates
Partners not the path.

.                                                     I collared you, love
.                                                     Hope one day so in both worlds
.                                                     I love you truly.

Thirty-one years love.
Sometimes so hard to believe
Passion flames again.

There's not much to say about me. I discovered SecondLife by accident, wandered in, and decided I wanted to stay. This blog was a chronicle of my adventures and misadventures in SL. It also includes stray thoughts that occur to me as a result of my time in SL. Both I and my avatar are female. We both love water and the beach and gardening and parties and hanging out with friends. Updating this after quite some time. I haven't appeared in SL in many many months (probably over a year by now) but SL has remained in my thoughts. I do miss my SL, but at least I still have contact with some of my friends from there. In the meantime.... this blog has evolved to be about my RL adventures. :) Nowhere near as risque as my SL but I do keep busy. I still like all the things listed above. I didn't have any cats in SL (only ducks and a panda) so my cats feel that they should play starring roles in my posts. :) I didn't do much eating IN SL although certainly food and drink accompanied me in RL while I roamed inworld. Cooking and baking have become more fun and interesting once I redid my kitchen. That renovation took longer and cost more than if I'd done it virtually, but I'm thrilled to have a tangible new kitchen! I hope you like food and drink as well! Thanks for reading!
