Extraordinary Measures

When I think
of the extraordinary contraptions
people have devised
to carry water across
these dry and barren lands
I wonder how it is we cannot see
that Love, too, can sometimes require
extraordinary measures
to reach its serpentine embrace
across the Great Divides
we all too carefully construct
between ourselves and those whose lives
are closely bound with ours.

Thank you for this. I will be reflecting on it throughout the day :)
