Love


Look at the stars
they glitter like tiny gems
but are they really tiny? ?
If someone believes that
he suffers from lack of sight,
is ​hit by deception.
Stars are not stars
they are burning celestial bodies
The moth's love is not for the ​
star-lamps​
nor Night bird's is for ​the ​stars
​They ​love them ​
for the love of their luminous emissions
Infatuation drives them crazy
they try to kiss the tip of the flame
and perish to ashes! ​

Love is not demanding
Love is not asking
Love is not even giving
Love is just love
Like a wave craving to be lost in the sea
Or a drop perishing in the ocean
​Only to enjoin
To be One​.

Poem of the Day

poet Alfred Lord Tennyson

It little profits that an idle king,
By this still hearth, among these barren crags,
Match'd with an aged wife, I mete and dole
Unequal laws unto a savage race,
