Love's Glow



Love's Glow.

The advent of love warms frozen soreness
in all stony hearts.
Its melt-down uncovers the edges of icy
unreadiness and
transforms cold into smiles more worthy
of receiving sweet
momentary yield as love's benign freedom
fans escape by heated
flame that which once taken hold will never
again allow frosty
defeat to block out future reaching for bliss.

Experience the feel
of love's fateful kiss and give its fire chance
to liquify previous snow
for love's glow needs nothing more than slow
stoking with gratitude's
coals for it knows one spark of felt happiness
will thaw frosted minds as
its blaze burns away spots of frigid heart-chill.

    Even a heart made of stone could feel the warm glow of the love you speak in your poem and those who choose to be of stone deny themselves that magical feeling that can just make one smile happy to be alive. In the way you write just leaves me inspired. Thank you dear Fay.

      Dear Teddy - you are so generous with my take on Love's Glow and many thanks too for adding it to your list of favourite poems.

      well I, do certainly feel
      the magnetic capability you imbue within each write
      empowering while nourishing our tapped-out, spirituality
      a pathway to that lost language, devoid of words
      where Nature guides us
      through the wise words of her Poetess queens...
      as ever I humbly thank you, dear Fay

      These two stanzas are true poetic medicine Fay, though beautifully delicate, they are mightily constructed.

      Bravo, and I hope that all is well.

      Love comes to us like the promised treasure at the end of that rainbow of desire we know with the colours of self protection harbouring hope. A gift so precious that it is truly priceless.
      Your words today reminded me of the warm 'twoness' of real love.

      Love is so very strong in our lives Fay and your words have shown this strength.

      ... to coin a phrase ...Love is all ya need ...
      ... warm glows & poetry apart ... this is something else

      Love certainly warms the cockles of ones heart, as do your words the literary world.
