Speak to Us of Love

Day 200…

How do you speak of love?  A connection with the senses?  The feeling that happens when watching your baby sleep.  Or experiencing a glorious sunset.  Or tasting hand cranked homemade ice cream on a really hot day.  Or digging in freshly tilled earth.  Or crawling into clean sheets after a long day.  Or listening to Handel’s Messiah at Christmas time.   Or bacon frying in the kitchen on a hard-to-get-up morning.  Or touching a long-lost friend. 

And knowing you are a part of something greater than the moment.  The desire to commit to this love.

Kahlil Gibran’ words–

Love has no other desire but to fulfil itself.  But if you love and must needs have desires, let these be your desires: 

To melt and be ike a running brook that sings its melody to the night.

To know the pain of too much tenderness.

To be wounded by your own understanding of love;

And to bleed willingly and joyfully.

To wake at dawn with a winged heart and give thanks for another day of loving;

To rest at the noon hour and meditate love’s ecstasy;

And then to sleep with a prayer for the beloved in your heart and a song of praise upon your lips.

  1. Love this post…and find it intriguing that as I wrote on my own blog today, my focus was very similar – what is it to love? Without a partner or being in romantic love, how is love in our lives? You so perfectly outlined what love can be in our every day. Thank you for sharing….on this the anniversary of International Women’s Day. Perfect for generating and feeling the truth of LOVE. xoxo
