  How delicate a thing you once were whenever I approached.
Trembling in the disturbed currents of air as the distance between us dwindled to a fraction of breath...or a sigh.
Color bloomed on your cheeks, as you took flight to escape my touch.
My love, you were my koan.
The sound of one hand clapping.
A butterfly.
