HAPPY VALENTINES' DAY
“Love is composed of a single soul inhabiting two bodies.” - Aristotle
Seeing it’s Lovers’ Day Eve, I thought it appropriate to indulge in a love poem that is dedicated to all lovers. Those gentle souls who lie clasped in each other’s arms and share heartbeats, exchange souls and between whom silence is as eloquent as thousand words. My poem for you:
I Breathed your Soul
As our breaths were mingling, your head clasped to my breast, I looked into your half-closed eyes and shared your dreams. As I could feel your gentle breath move my heart yet closer, I breathed your soul in, and my heart enclosed itself in yours.
As our hands entwined, and our lives lay coiled in perfect symmetry, My words remained unsaid, for your mind was already filled with mine. Your smile, my sun – my eyes your moon, I breathed sweet air that you exhaled and drank your kisses.
If I were to think of you without my life, I’d think no more, For without you, my life is truly without life. And yet, even then I should not die, For I have within my soul, your soul, And you within your mind my mind; But your heart carries within it mine And a heartless life is life, but life is not.
I have been blogging daily on this platform for several years now. It is surprising that I have persisted as the world is changing and "microblogging" is now the norm. I blog to amuse myself, make comment on current affairs, externalise some of my creativity, keep notes on things that interest me, learn something new and to surprise myself with things that I discover about this wonderful, and sometimes crazy, world we live in.
I sometimes get the impression that I am on a soapbox delivering a monologue, so your comments are welcome.
