What is Love?


WHAT IS LOVE?
FOR THE HEART: IT MAY BE 'A TWINGE OF A TWANG'
'A CLING OR A CLANG'
A STAB OR A THROB'

FOR THE SELF: IT MAY BE 'A PSYCHOLOGICAL MOOD
OR A SPIRITUA L FOOD'
'A SUDDEN FEVER THAT TAKES OVER
OR AN SOS SIGNAL THAT THE EGO MIGHT DISAPPEAR'

FOR THE EXISTENCE: IT MAY BE ' A WOUND IN BEING'S HEART
FROM WHICH YOU NEVER RECOVER
OR THE NATURE'S MYSTERIOUS WAY
FOR TWO BEINGS TO BEGIN TO DISCOVER'

FOR THE LOVERS: IT MAY BE
'WHERE THE MYSTERY OF THEIR BEING IS HIDDEN
OR THE SAVORING OF AN ECSTATIC EXPERIENCE
WHICH IS NO MORE FORBIDDEN'

FOR THE LIFE: IT MAY BE
'A UNISON OF TWO SOULS WHO WILL BE EQUAL PARTNERS
IN LIFE'S SORROWS, JOYS AND FIGHTS
OR A REMINDER NOT TO GET ATTACHED TO ANYTHING MATERIAL
WHILE TAKING IN EVERYONE OF WORLD'S DELIGHTS'

Poem of the Day

poet Walt Whitman

ARM’D year! year of the struggle!
No dainty rhymes or sentimental love verses for you, terrible year!
Not you as some pale poetling, seated at a desk, lisping cadenzas
piano;
