In love, be like ...

Updated on November 16, 2015

a light autumn leaf

that takes its gentle course

to glide to its soft destination

at its own pace,


not like a heavy spring fruit

that thuds itself to the hard ground

only to get badly broken

at speed,

the terrific Moon at its cool

always beaming a warm emotion


not like the scorching Sun

that terribly heats the warmth of the feel,

a candid candy

gradually pulling in the pleasure strings

of your sweetheart

at your own leisure


not like a stealthy hound

pouncing into a sudden plunge

only to scare!

      I like it. I say let the process take the rest of your life and take it easy, to be savored. Great job.

      WoW! An incredible piece! Yes, why rush? In love, it is always a dream; a vision. So ethereal; so deep and profound. Roses dance and praise in the 'forever-togetherness' of this magical moment. Hari Om!
