The Edge Effect

defined as –

-The point at which two ecosystems meet and according to ecology, is where the most new life forms are created

You and I are Edges

Of two Worlds

Colliding and Combining

Melding and Meshing

You and I are beauty

From the unborn


From nothing

Blooming without guilt

Flourishing without shame

To know not the many shades of

Brown and black

Until it paints roots within my womb

To kiss it alive

To bring two worlds




My love, look at us.

we are beautiful.

    So, so beautiful, Alex!!! I love how you worded this – that melding of two worlds to become one and create something beautiful and new. That’s just brilliant! ☺️👏👏👏
