Love Is - Poem by Saskia Harjono

Love is the mind’s doing – and not the eyes' -
and so they say,
the mind tricks, illuminating a pony
to a celestial creature

Love is the essence of human life
and so we are told –
but isn’t it a malign satisfaction to possess, conquering
the hollow image of reality?

Love is tasting caramel in a bowl of gourds – doesn’t make sense
Love is humming a lullaby in faltering staccato – you can hardly sleep
Love is seeing the fiery moonlight in eclipse – phenomenal

Love is,
Depending what you choose to remember

For love is,

    To see love in such things is to see through
    its many disguises.

    Love is tasting caramel in a bowl of gourds
    hummmm- when it is too sweet, the heart gets melodramatic

    When it comes to Love, even though its the most wonderful feeling on earth, the heart remembers the pain, whilst the mind tries so hard to forget, when we fall from loves grasp.

    A great poem..

    all the best
