Love Musings 2

The facets of love that we understand and those we don't...
A flower (gay) too has the right to love and so do the lovers who die for lost love...love comes in so many shades that it never ceases to amaze us.
Every heart/mind finds love. If all of us were alike, there would be no special person who can make the heart flutter or the knees go weak! We can thank genes for this.
Read on to try decipher the meaning of love.




VI


Panoply of love
In the annals of life,
Why boil it down
To the heat of the loins?

VII
If love is divine
And if for love
Death is praised,
Why stone to death
A flower that loves a flower?

VIII
If all minds saw alike
We would like lumber
Line up before the saw,
Thank genes for variety-
Finds minds to love.

IX
Love too demands
Harmony sculptured,
Like a garden pruned,
Weeded and bordered.

X
Love for oneself
Casts a shadow on love,
Hate oneself
And become the shadow.
