A poem about love, life and the little incidents intimately projected in this brilliant piece. The kind of poetry, I so admired. The metaphors here described are finest but ardent, in a way they touched my heart since I can almost hear those sighs inside the place. My CONGRATULATIONS on being chosen as the Modern Poem of The Day,

One plus one equal one, unknowable except in the moment, not convertible into words, ......touching expression with a lofty theme. One plus one is possible in Love not in Mathematics. A beautiful poem so nicely executed. Thanks and congratulations for being selected this poem as the poem of the day.

The height of artistic reality, more and less than love, more of luck than will.
