A Matter of Love


Your writing is unhinged

Just be careful

Those people can seriously harm you

Aren’t you afraid?

Why do you throw yourself in harm’s way?

Tell me why?

It is not a matter of courage

It is a matter of love

1926744_10204502631798691_5130501013836395018_n

A love so great that every sacrifice worthwhile

All pain bearable

1900119_667322606668407_937846377_n

Love of Truth, Justice, Peace and Humanity

Love of gentleness and kindness, compassion and beauty

Love of babies when they’re born

As they take their first step

As they make their first smile

Then from then on, every step of the way

Love of children when they laugh

As they dream of hugging the world

As they giggle when they play

Flattering their wings as they fly

Love of earth running amok

Day and night chasing one another

Hoping to meet by the horizon

Out of breath kissing the sky

416787_432989426761555_795658946_n

Love of oceans as they pound

Racing to sleep on seashore’s lap

Love of mountains as they rise

Love of rivers as the flow

Love of blossoming almond trees

Bridal dress in a magic show

Love of olive trees silver and green

Brushed with wand of a fairy queen

1001423_10152691973991542_867785995_n

Love of daisies holding hands

and of poppies as they dance

Love of wheat meadows as they sway

Rustic gold in cool summer day

418964_570416762978396_317900074_n

Love of colours, all shades and hues

Twirling dervish, rainbow in prayer

Love of stars and galaxies, big and small

Shimmering deep within my soul

231898-1600x900

Love of fathers as they gaze

At their little ones dazed with elation

and of mothers as they nurse,

Teeming with love and adoration

150670_344590875647946_1768064251_n

Love of life… ALL life

I don’t want to see it harmed

Let alone destroyed

11133700_776957299078167_1900452002296373472_n

Love of love without which life would literally cease to be

Love of love as it ushers chaos into sublime harmony

306823_166447576766184_919270_n copy

Love of love as it explodes, 

a million stars

When I look into my beloved’s eyes

1461528_492419240872172_958981387_n

I don’t want to see all that go

Do you?

Now, can you see why?
