The Science of Love.

‘All the Elements of You,’ by Pearldiver, is about love and the magical range of emotions that we feel when we first realize that we are in love. In one way or another, at certain times in our lives, love takes control of the majority of us and as a result of that event we will tend to change our life perspectives and to willingly submit to that new journey.

Love takes many forms and because of that Pearldiver has chosen to represent that aspect of love by using an analogy of seeking its most precious state, through the magical process of alchemy. One of the objectives of the ancient practice of alchemy was to turn everyday objects or substances into gold, or the elixir of life. Alchemy later developed into the science of Chemistry. Falling in love creates an intense, dreamy desire to genuinely connect and we also refer to that state as being, the chemistry between the lovers.

Each of the four elements of; Earth, Fire, Air and Water are said to influence our individual nature and personality, but love at its most powerful, rises above those influences and takes us even deeper into the chemistry that is developed between the lovers. ‘All the Elements of You’ explores the ‘science’ of love and its vulnerability, when magic and uncertainty exist beyond clear perceptions.

What Makes This Precious Ore?

Beyond my ability to believe.

All the Elements of You


She moves silently, gliding over slate floors

As if to force my imagination to believe

That I, assayer of dreams, will surely love

Her soul, by virtue of an outstretched heart

And as if, in trails of golden dust and flakes

I will measure each step closer, by its purity and weight

Its energy, a shallow breath, our pulses race so much

And here now forged in gold, comes our very first touch


So rarely could one find, such pleasure in desire

Her presence cast far, beyond any average reach

Beyond subconscious drumming beats, in golden steps

She came to me, gracefully, beyond my ability to believe

That I had been so loved before, beyond this scene

Here we lay, in etherized purity, framed in tangled waves

Waves of yearning wetness, lovers don’t forget

Where softly mixed bodies, are so deeply sketched

In charcoal strokes, or magically, in earthen silhouettes

Surely these golden rays, as with those that were before

Aren’t merely fiery, sunlit rays, but rather, truly precious ore!

Formed in love’s subtle alchemy, between reality and dreams

Heightened senses, reaching out, beyond our souls, it seems

Like nothing in our dream world

Could ever feel so warm, so true

But then, nothing in a real world

Could ever match, all the elements; Of You...

Great job leading us into real, intense description that you had for us. I like the line about the charcoal strokes. I went to art school. It was hard not to fall in love with the model.

Hi Mary Lynn, thank you for that kind compliment and for enjoying this piece. I have a really unusual way of learning about the flow of things that I write about in poetry. I time the flow and beat of my words by my pulse... and now that I have told you that.. you can sure see how my pulse was on those days that I wrote really bad poetry... hahaha! You be well and enjoy your Spring flow.

The powerful imagery really gives this hub even more meaning and fascination. I was captivated by "Anticpation." I agree with Ruby...this is like a "precious gem."

Very elemental! Descriptive allegory of metal, love, very gracefully done, very powerful, let me try to match it! much admiration, Pearl, and I just had a remembrance when I crushed pearls, and ate them, please, do not consider that personal, but i will try to do this now... I hope you like it... Thank you for poem, lily

Hi Lily, thank you for your words and for the positive compliment. Well, I'm not sure I understand why one would crush pearls and eat them Lily? I haven't heard of the practice and could only imagine that a crushed pearl would act on a digestive system, like powered glass - violently!

I look forward to reading your work though.. cheers and take care Lily.

MIA was one of the last exchanges on your old fb page - forgot your new one :( Looking to share one of your poems but it seems to be gone(?) Hmmm. Looking forward to hearing back from you. btw: I'm sure the critics, like the rest of us, love you. Don't know if NZ is the same as HI, but when there was a Tsunami warning there, fleeing to higher ground on the only road up, put one in the perfect state. We were all letting others in, accepting that if it was our time to leave it was still all good :)


Pearldiver profile image

Pearldiver 4 years ago from Tomorrow - In Words & NZ Time. Author

Hi Sylvia, as I said it is good to catch up with you and know you okay. well yes, I guess in many respects I have been MIA when it comes to all things FB.. sorry about that.. life influences eroding playtime :) If you are looking at a poem which reflects a lot of depth and contains 'anti-critic matter' then I'm sure you will enjoy my latest allegory, 'Venus in Retrograde.' This is where all my writing practice has led me to and the poem represents much of that journey... I would feel honored to have you read it my friend and consider it from the perspective that I discussed in my email.

Most Kiwis didn't ascend to high ground during the Tsunami alert.. they tended to line the shores hoping to see something out of the ordinary! Amazing.. how foolishly ignorant of nature some can be.. but I guess in some respects many felt it just couldn't occur! NZ had just suffered from major earthquakes, so maybe many were too stunned by what had happened to the city of Christchurch! I will mail you soon... take care my friend

That was amazing! I am kicking myself for not checking out your hubs before...lol.. You are always such fun in the forums, I don't believe I have been so dense. That poem reminded me of a dream I had last night where I met the love of my life and he rested his head on my chest and we were literally inseparable....silly dream but earth signs have the most vivid dreams.

Pearldiver 4 years ago from Tomorrow - In Words & NZ Time. Author

Hi Cardisa, thank you for taking the time to read my poetry and for your positive comment. That is not such a silly dream at all.. hahaha.. I am sure that style of theme has been dreamed about by many young men throughout the centuries and encouraged by equally as many offering the resting place!

I'm glad you enjoyed my work here, it is quite well read and supported throughout the world from this site. I really appreciate your support.. take care

Beautiful poem to say the least! I got little confused between the love and the ore....... :)) ....... Your elements are truly unique! So what kind of dragon is it, Fire, Water, Wood, Metal? :)

Very eloquent flow, with rich and vivid discription. Enjoyed it!


Pearldiver profile image

Pearldiver 4 years ago from Tomorrow - In Words & NZ Time. Author

Hi LT, thanks for your compliment on this poem, glad you enjoyed it... love and ore? Really? The color of light maybe, or it's in the reading? There is more than one way to take this poem.

A paper dragon, one without smudged ink, possessing a dislike of fire & fools and a fearlessness of soul borne reality... not so unique, as to be redundant or chic! Hahaha... merely proficient with tools!

Is it so tactful to ask one's age, from behind an undeclared element of oneself? - A paper dragon asked tactlessly... take care... PD


LaThing profile image

LaThing 4 years ago from From a World Within, USA

LOL, Robby, love or ore, really?? You didn't get my humor here? No, your poem is wonderful, no confusion here, I was just pulling your legs..... You did mentioned slate, golddust and charcoal...... :)

The poem is about 'All the Elements...', thus came the question of fire, water, etc., 'merely' to get familiar with the dragon's character! In this world of Cyberdom, what does age have to do with anything, ninety nine, or three, it's all the same! From a Dragon slayer behind the mask with Fire within, you are safe, since she spares the Paper Dolls, and Dragons :))

By the way, Wood floats, so it can't be a Diver!

Pearldiver 4 years ago from Tomorrow - In Words & NZ Time. Author

Dear Lizzy, I have, within the duration of this poem, found with much surprise, how hard it must be for two fish to communicate meaningfully beside the glass of a public aquarium on school visit day! I so hate to sink your wooden theory, but the right weighted rock will always sink the wood or paper.

Yes... I also now understand your ore-some confusion, but I must say, in all fairness, that it may be more socially acceptable (and more balanced) if you only pull one leg at a time! Hahaha... 99/3.. of course... Well slayer, I did say:

"A paper dragon, one without smudged ink

possessing a dislike of fire & fools

and a fearlessness of soul-borne reality...

not so unique

as to be redundant or chic!

Hahaha... merely proficient with tools!"

- And you grant me safety??? I am well trained in the use of fire extinguishers, claws and the ancient ways of stoned cherries!

I know how a peach fells when squeezed and never unnecessarily expose my character to masked kindness, when able to read the 'Do not feed the fish' sign attached to the aquarium wall... it's a Diver okay! Take my word for it and take care... :) :)


LaThing profile image

LaThing 4 years ago from From a World Within, USA

AHA! Then EARTH it shell be! But your mentioning of paper - I, a (mere) mortal being, assumed that it is wood, since the origin of paper is wood.... Elementary my dear Watson! In any case Earth has no power over Fire :)

And I can understand pulling one leg, IF IT WAS A MAN, but, since we are talking about a dragon here ...... you need to grab both legs :)

So, She is a kind hearted Slayer, who chooses her dragons with wisdom and integrity; not with some Foolish notion of pure pleasure! She spares the ones that are weak and fragile...... For surly, fire will burn any paper any day, won't you say so, my dear paper dragon, AKA, Pearl? ;)

The Masked Kindness posses wisdom beyond a common surfer's imagination, and there is no need to expose the dragon's character as she already knows a lot from his wonderful work......

And, dear sir, I will never feed a Diver to the fish, specially if the sign says 'Do Not Feed The Fish!' ;)

Well, this is more like communicating from two different aquarium on an Open House night at the school.... I know exactly what you mean. LOL

Stay well, Robby!

Never ass-u-me or you may be completely wrong

The real McCoys, were not like the Hadfield boys

But if you believe in your fire and it is strong

Then I guess you can scorch fragile earthen toys

But eventually, you will seek a calming place to be

And if the dragon is really the real McCoy

more by fact than by anyone's insistence

Be wary as you sooth your powers by the sea

Some dragons also breath fire, some use it as a ploy

Real dragons take the path of least resistance

And wash over all who would pull their legs and enjoy,

the assumption of having greater wisdom than this boy!

Kapeesh mortal??


LaThing profile image

LaThing 4 years ago from From a World Within, USA

ROFL...... You are some Dragon boy!! :)) I am holding my self back from replying...... Too many parents around, and the aquariums are far apart, and fishes can't do hand signal, doesn't matter how much they try!

Hadfield and McCoys?? Come on now..... I thought you were a surfer boy, not a Cowboy!! And, yes, some dragons do breath fire..... But Paper Dragon? Think twice before you try it .... Puff, gone up in smoke!!

Boys will be boys, leave them with their little dragon toys....... I might be mortal, but don't test your luck here dragon boy. After all you are dealing with a Dragon Slayer! ;)

LOL..... like your poem

Such a formidable plea consigned to a mere splash

an urgent scramble and lo, wet limbs do quake

poor thing leaving greatness in puddles on the floor

saddens all other guppies, there gasping and raw

the slayer is slain, drowned by assumption and more

"Hail the Dragon!" she reluctantly swore..... ha whata... peanut!


LaThing profile image

LaThing 4 years ago from From a World Within, USA

ROFL........ In your dreams, sweet Pearl!! The dragon is just a paper doll with big imagination! Hasn't seem the world yet, as he lives in an aquarium, all wet and soggy..... What else can he do but imagine that he will face this great Lady Slayer one day and defeat her..... BUT the poor little dragon has no clue who he is dealing with.... Why, he doesn't even know what weapon she carries! :))

Robby, Robby, I think it's time for you to give up!
