The Ways of Love

Love, O how can we know ye?

As the spirit drives us

to look past the veneer and seek unspoken, inner truths.

Ignorance is bliss, say the naysayers

but to know well enough not to stir

the pit of emotions erroneously

which only awakens the bite of jealousy,

moving the spirit into spiteful action

As life unfolds, she teaches us

in myriad ways

the passion play of words and meaning

stages, constructs and differing perceptions

romances and sacrifices to behold

not unlike the Ibis who pierces her flesh

for the sake of her young

Beheld to ideals of sacred truth

to honor thyself

My dear self,

nothing becomes clear to me

Not death, life, nor love

until with you, I am most honest.

The Universe opens up to me

when I am honest in heart, mind and soul

To merge again with everything she is

has been our ultimate goal since we fell

and through those brief moments of clarity

sometimes learn no song more true

than that beautiful bond between mortal and the divine.
