What Is Love?

by Larry Rush (author's profile)


What is Love?

What is Love?
Love is hope
Seeking self assurance
To overcome an obstacle.
It is a feeling of tranquillity
The heart of life,
The joy of tears.
Love is the cloud that flies,
The wind that lies.
Love is the spear
That strikes all chains
To the pearly gates.
Love is the flower
That sprouts in the day
And sleeps through the night,
What a beautiful dream,
A perfect delight.
Love is faith,
The imperishable tool,
A gift from our God,
A most precious jewel.
Love is your blood
That scatter your seed,
Building generations,
Adhering to one's needs.
Love is a force
That replenishes self.
It mends our sorrows,
It gives us help.
Love is watching the sun rise
While being enclosed in a dark cave.
Love is drinking water from an empty cup.
Love is freezing ice with a flame.
Love is hearing the rocks grow,
Seeing the voices of the animals,
Feeling the oceans flow.
Love is the armor of the spirit,
The atom of bliss,
The essence of vision,
It shall always persist.
Consumed within nature, inbred in our souls.
For it is our bounty, for it is our goal.
So relish your wisdom, fly it like a dove.
For you are the answer to the question,
What is Love?

I am a collector of quotes and have spent most of my evening doing just that on websites that are full of them and this was one of the best and most poetic collection of words, I have seen all day.
I love the sentence that starts in the second line. I also love the sentence that starts with Love is hearing the rocks grow. If it is ok with you, I am going to add this to my collection.
Keep being inspiring!
