Universal Love

We all want
that universal love
so big, so vast.
And we all want it
to go on forever,
to last and last.
And we are all
looking here and there
the future, our past.
But it seems that
it is to never be
in the sky or the sea
Love flies free
as a hummingbird...
hovers for a moment
taking our nectar
and then flees.

    Always wanted to touch a hummingbird.....never have but one time sitting by the honeysuckle watching a hummingbird it came right up to my face so close I felt air on my cheek from its wings. This poem reminded me of that. (Report) Reply

    In just a couple of words you mean a lot! This is an insightful poem reflecting on something so precious and desirable- that Universal Love!
    The poet wishes for that Universal manifestation, yet he reckons love comes and goes, sometimes leaving just poignant traces...
    Good Luck! (Report) Reply

    Wonderful write Thomas, we are all seeking that universal love, but it is very elusive it seems. (Report) Reply
