L O V E
There is love and then there is LOVE.
Love with a little ‘l’ the one that we dream of and wish for.
The one we fear we’ll lose
the one we go to the movies to see.
is like a lollypop,
you suck it,
occasionally bite into it but soon it is done.
You might claw at the stick with your teeth to extract the last skerrick of sweetness,
the illusion that was the lollipop is gone, never to be seen again.
Love with the big ‘L’
the heat beyond the dream,
the truth within the wish,
the one that can’t be lost,
the Love that caused the movie to be made.
It is like the big bang,
the never ending sugar pop,
the kiss of God,
the sparkles that make the air we breathe.
LOVE with the big ‘L’ is the IS that lies at the core of ‘ex IS tence’,
the poem that concedes to You and I as ONE and shares a tear at the beauty of it all.
No thing can be lost when we rest in true love.
No other thing exists.
Take of your cloak and dance with me to the song
that holds US
as it’s harmony.
