Love is

Love

Is not some remote

Ethereal ideal

Stuck on

A fluffy cloud

And guarded

By a flock

Of befeathered

Heavenly beings.

 

Love is,

Instead,

A deep and abiding

Thought

That grows steadily

In beauty

As it is

Contemplated,

And matures

As it is actioned.

 

Love is

In the acts of

Altruism

That live in

The thick

Of humans

Who struggle

With all that life

Is and

Is not.

 

Love is that

Touch tender

That finds its

Essence

In those

Moments

Beyond the demands

Of emotion,

Where to

Give is the

Good and

To act

Is the right

Way to be.
