Love


For only in silence
Can one come to understanding
For in the fewest words
Comes forth the
Greater voice

And Wisdom is everywhere
Just breath it in
Let it penetrate every
Cell of your body

Love is elusive
Fleeting, seldom enduring;
Buttercup butterflies
Bouncing in an autumn wind,
Here, then gone again

Combine wisdom with understanding
And love, and you
Will come to a crossroad,
A passing of a point

Then you leave
You pass that point;
And what was a brilliance of light
For a moment, flashes and
Disappears into eternity

Poem of the Day

poet Christopher Marlowe

It lies not in our power to love or hate,
For will in us is overruled by fate.
When two are stripped, long ere the course begin,
We wish that one should love, the other win;
