Poetry: “Where is LOVE?”

Poem By Mariel Hemingway

In sweet summer woods before hot sun overwhelms you,
In the whisper of a breeze that cools you,
On bright sunny mornings cloudless honest silent & alone.

In my lover’s eyes when he hears a song that reminds him of why we didn’t meet before,
In knowing that the pain will always go away no matter how hard you try to make it stay,
In a hug that could not have come at a better time.

In the moments you watch your kitty with his head upside down after a night of carousing,
When your dog licks you even though you left him inside all day long,
In the hummingbirds’ march to find nectar in an empty feeder you scramble to fill.

When the ocean is so cold you scream with excitement over the energy it gifts you,
Early morning cold, quiet and new,
Twilight on the edge of a cliff waiting for the stars to brighten.

A cup of tea on the porch before the sun rises over the mountains,
The rush of feeling that sun brings as it hits your eyes,
Jasmine when you cannot see the plant itself.

LOVE is feeling all things fully,
LOVE is awareness,
LOVE is in the moments between thoughts,
LOVE is endless.
