A Love Poem of Strength: Love Is Awesome in Its Splendor
What Is the Poetry of a Man's Love?
Poetry has the ability to move the immovable. It is a special language that has the power to shape worlds, to create or destroy countries and to melt hearts. It is the language of love; it is the language of hate. It is the language of conciliation; it is the language of change. It is a language that might explain the depths and vagaries of a man's love more easily than speaking.
As the language of love, poetry can express what millions may not be able to freely express to the object of their desire. But when expressed, it can open the eyes of a potential lover, helping them to see the depth of passion and longing. It can be the very aid a man needs to "capture" his love and feel the splendor.
To set the mood, listen as you read.
Awesome in Its Splendor
She is the daughter of the Moon,
She is the sister to the Sun.
With arms flung open to the Universe
Grasping hungrily for the highest, brightest stars,
She gave birth to our love.
Her breath is the breeze
That gently kisses my cheek; she is content.
Her breath is the hurricane
Howling her pain, scattering my peace
To the farthest constellation.
Still, love watches patiently as
Her hair spreads and ripples
Like the undulating waves of the ocean.
Her love ebbs and flows like the tides
pulled by her sister Moon.
I am victim of the vagaries of love,
As we are victims of nature around us.
Chaotic in its order,
Awesome in its splendor,
Overwhelming in its timelessness.
I am Lover, I am confidante, I am mate.
