“Love is an endless mystery, for it has nothing else to explain it.”  Rabindranath Tagore

 

Love Is There

I’m not sure that I can trace beginnings or endings. Once I thought I could, but now I’m not so certain. The dualities of childhood eventually and thankfully slipped away in youth, so that sharp lines and edges, defined density of colours, even surety of perception, all faded in time. To just be in the moment seemed out of reach, until the great letting go, to surrender to ebb and flow without fear or seeking reason was, in the end, the greatest of joys. Even now I don’t know why I was surprised every time love started or ended. But looking back, the question makes no sense. Starts and endings are merely endings and starts. You see love doesn’t start or end, it just is. Somehow I knew, know, that love circles, but I must trust and embody its seamless, wondrous, passionate rhythm.

  8. I really like how your prose poem moves from the dualities of childhood to the circular nature of love. It gave me much to contemplate.

  13. wow I think this has to be my all time favourite so far Paul … you really nailed it!

    Love is circular and if we feel it ended then maybe it’s just that we were toying with the notion rather than truly engaging ….

    Glad you’re healing well and sounds like you might be writing it out 🙂

  14. Lovely read. It never ends, we just get in the way of it until we learn to let those thousands of veils fall, one by one, to show the truth.
