I am Love

by Barbara MacDonald (writer), CANADA , August 24, 2013

Credit: unknown

Love is the answer, and you know that for sure; Love is a flower, you've got to let it grow. John Lennon

Deliberately with lucidity of purpose

Opening my eyes and essence to you

I feel you as a warm breeze caressing my spirit

Do not let fear inhibit your heart

I bring you prayers of your unconscious

Thoughts, desires, longings....

I have always been the justification

To all you have sought

The retreat you run to in the darkness

The safeguard to your soul

I am the light and motivation

Of God's breath in you

I am your journey now and always

May you live your truth....

I AM LOVE....

You are the maestro of love, the conductor of musical lyrics scriped in poetry.

I still have my notebook and pen, and I am taking notes.[SMILE]

Fine display of poetry, very classy.

poetry in motion/devotion? Mentally "tiptoe through the tulips"...does your 'true' lips Barb. Shame the world isn't governed by poets of your ilk and understanding of what's important in life.Never seen anyone maimed by the residue ether of poetry,humor,understanding and acceptance of one another. That the world should be immersed and saturated by it.Heaven knows it could do with a good dunking at this present time. Or do we keep picking up the "worn torn stress that some body threw out?"...love child, love child,never meant to be? Could be if people would put aside their differences and face the reality of what's good for all...calmer before karma? Meaning before mean? Nice one Barb. But what else have we come to expect from you?

Awe, thank you Riginal...you are always so giving in your comments and certainly I do appreciate the encouragement...Maybe we can buy an island and pick and chose who we wish to live there... a heaven on earth...from this silly idealist poet. Thank you again...have a great weekend my friend.

rock on: ideals, and practicality. I know they don't win wars but then who instigates,triumphs, at the end of a 'no ultimate winner' altercation? "No man is an island unto himself" i said to my missus. She replied,"that's because women are a superior race and man would get lost without us!" Rubbish! I wandered round many islands,(secluded inlets) by myself before i fell in love...actually i didn't fall Barb...more of an abrupt trip.Slid on the moss.Skinned my knees. Incidently,when i come to think of it, a woman hasn't started a war has she? No time. Too much housework? Maybe after the kids fall asleep? I envy women...they've got so much to do!...and so little help from us guys to do it. Have a great weekend.I know us guys will. Of course if anything needs fixing...

Barb it's the poetic type in you which is overiding your fingers. My brain sometimes gets so far ahead of my typing i have to stop and ask myself "...and what in the hell do you mean by that?" It's scary...my brain that is...! And i'm only using not quite half of it.
