Love Poems by rebekahELLE

Love

Love is an infinite spiral, forever existing in some form of energy.

"Sometimes we just need to sit outdoors and listen closely to heaven... above us, around us, within us. "

rebekahELLE

I have written my entire life. I have journals, old notebooks, computer files, torn slips of paper with inspiration, poetic utterances scribbled quickly, so as not to forget. I remember one of my first poems written while a young girl. It was titled, "The Horse That Jumped Over The Rainbow." I always knew I wanted to write, and as I grew older, I imagined what it meant to be in love. Was it kind of like the love in fairy tales?

What is love? So many definitions, so many feelings, so many songs and poems are penned, describing this mysterious, elusive, overwhelming, dark, radiant, effusive energy we call love. I share with you two of my poems about love. The first is written as three short, separate poems packaged together as Love, Gift Divine. The second is deeper, asking the reader to ponder the measureless dimensions of love, and its greater purpose in this grand circle of life. Surely, something as enduring as love never dies, so, Where Does Love Go When You Let It Go?

Loves First Breath...

his touch doth bring"
his touch doth bring"

Love, Gift Divine


Loves first breath

his touch doth bring,

to lift the veil

and

open my world

to a perfect ray of dawn.

Its gentle light

whispers love, gift divine.


Tenderness so soft as the perfect sapling,

pure and sweet to my taste.

Eyes like dark planets,

I become lost in their passion

in this language of love with no words.

Its seed lands gracefully

to sprout and take root

in my deepest heart,

ever growing this eternal blossom

which brings such beauty to my world.



Only one thought of you
brings stillness to my soul.
Your love doth fill my cup,
and runs down my hand
to touch my heart with
this gift of you.

Love...

... a pure drop of rain
... a pure drop of rain

Where Does Love Go When You Let It Go?

This love that we breathed
and let flow through our veins,

does it now fall from the heavens
as
a pure drop of rain?

Oh, where does it go when you let it

go…


Does it fall upon a blade of grass
and
spring up as the lovely flower of June?


Does it fill the song of a bird
singing

softly in the night?



Dare I should turn around
and
expect to catch the last setting shades of the
sun?

Echoes heard in the

Aegean Sea,

rippled currents

calling again

and

again

his name.

Very nice, especially with the accompaniment of ethereal Debussy to accentuate the mood.

hardly expressed 4 years ago

never imagined that love could prevent you from somethings that you like to do only for your lover

it strongly based on respect

I enjoyed, right in the heart of "Love, Gift Divine" the seed landing graceful in your deepest heart after having mentioned "eyes like dark planets". Very cool imagery and elegant delivery. I write a lot about love and I enjoyed this Hub immensely.

"Where does Love Go When It Goes" made me think about something I'd never thought of before. And that's what it should do. Right? Voted up and beautiful.

Lovely poems. I especially love this:

"Does it fall upon a blade of grass

and

spring up as the lovely flower of June?

Enjoyed it and thanks.

Thanks sofs for taking the time to read some of my poetry.

I always feel like people may know me better after reading, some poems have a way of expressing a deep part of who we are. I'm glad you enjoyed. See you around HP!

RebekahELLE,

These are great verses. My favorite lines were:

"does it fall upon a blade of grass

and

spring up as the lovely flower of June?"

It reminds me of a Walt Whitman ode to love.

Personally, I believe our love goes to God. I believe He (or She) remembers everything. When we die to join the "collective," (as it were), I think the divine language will be love. There'll be no air to carry words. We'll simply feel and communicate infinitely in such a short and long duration of time that it's eternal.

Thanks for sharing,

Dan

Hmmm, how did I know you were a poetess? I knew you were somehow and these are really nice. Where does love go when you let it go? It perches in the piney woods and the zephyr sings it back to me on a calm evening in June. Much love and peace. CC xox

lol, I don't remember if I was facing the wind. yes, Rob, the poem is to question and ask and ponder. I believe everything is connected. life, love is a journey. nothing ends. thanks so much for sharing, always nice to see you. :)

Where does love go when you let it go? Were you facing into the wind at the time Rebekah? Do we really let go or do we cover it in other emotions, so as not to see why we let go? LOve meant to stay will never go. Nice poems Rebekah, thank you for sharing them. Take Care.
