Love is the essence

Love is the essence

inflamed two lovers desire

creation alive


Love is the essence

joy beyond comprehension

new mother’s dreaming


Love is the essence

spiritual, divine, I woke

integrity, faith


Love is the essence

sacrifice one’s life purpose

humanities hope


Writers statement:

Conceptually love, is a universal feeling that people understand instinctively. It permeates our social/cultural worldviews connecting us biologically, spiritually is fluid and dynamic. The first three talk about love for another and love of self/spiritual awakening. The last is symbolic of sacrifice/ love for the planet, the importance fighting for causes and integrity in our personal/ community lives.
