MORE THOUGHTS ON LOVE--FREEDOM


So the graphic here is titled "PEACE"
I liked the picture a lot....
And are not "love"  and "peace"
Close relatives?


PEACE IS THE SISTER OF LOVE


A POEM OF
LOVE

The First Great Love simply HAD to be
A mystical "Somethingness"
Greater than us, you,or me .
More a Perfect Love, Union,
Almost analogous
To willingness
Together
Something and Something Else
Gifted and Gifting.
Each!

All that is created
All which has form
Was once mated
And then born
Few happenings solo
Are anywhere.
Anymore

But love, ahhhh!
Yes, unique at every turn,
Each instance
Of the gifting, receiving:
Sharing, and not fearing
Freeing, but not unseeing
Over, in, up and about
Neither silent we, nor shout.

Love is synonymous with free.
Freely given by he to she
And she also, back to him
Intently...not on whim.

As "Somethingness" gave love--life,
Also given was a will of freedom,
To choose, to act, and to be
One in love who is also free!

As man gives his life, his love
To another...at times mindless:
While saying "Love is the only thing"
He clamps in her nose that ring.
She'd be treated all so wrong,
For only on her finger
Does ring belong.

Selfish love shoves true love
Complete out of existence
Why suffocate, choke, repress
When heavenly bliss be so near?
Why such a jealous brat be, unless
Overcome with paranoiac fear?

Each within boundaries, must abide
Lines which have been set aside.
Allowing "live and let live" to be our motto
So love may be our garden, our grotto

Transcendental understanding becomes
Our code of life, and, too--
Our mystery of peace, happiness,
Calm acceptance..."Hey, YOU!"

Together we are alive
Together we are--yes--FREE!
Together we are greatly "in love"...
Together--you and me.

"Love is synonymous with free." As in freely given. That rocks my socks off.

The last stanza says it clearly.
Very good poem.

Oh My Peep!
With this one you've overdone(?) yourself
This is better and more meaningful to me these days than any other piece of trascendental wording you might give...(And that you always do!)

I hope you know what I mean and happen to do so!

I love the lines:
*She'd be treated all so wrong,
For only on her finger
Does ring belong*

It gives the Queen the place she deserves, you KING!

Love the "calm acceptance," Steve ;)

Syd said...

Nice one Steve. I don't like the idea of love enslaving another. Yet, that is what happens many times. Love is about freedom and trust and respect.

Thank you for stopping by my blog, Steveroni.

"All that is created
All which has form
Was once mated
And then born
Few happenings solo
Are anywhere.
Anymore" -- that was my favorite stanza in your poem, Steveroni. Love is truly powerful.

And you have the best "about me" on a profile that I've ever read. :)
