Before Proceeding

Before Proceeding
Just a few things
she needed to know:
Would he be jealous
if he found her
kissing the sun?
How would he handle
whispered conversations
with the moon?
Could he tolerate
sharing her hands
with the soil?
Would he feel inadequate
if the wind touched her
in ways he could not?
And what if he caught her
with limbs tangled
in and around
tall handsome trees?
