Love Happens...

Some cherish love
Like a comfortable sofa,
However threadbare,
A place to belong amongst the endless turmoil.
To feel snug and secure,
Whatever the cost.

Others are open to the untamed wildness of love,
Like the open seas and storm
Are to the pirates yearning,
Like the well-weathered deck
In the moonlight,
A hull thrashed by the sea of elemental fervor
Unleashed like the unpredictable
Waves of the heart.

Some love like the sweet pipings of the faery flute,
Weaving seamlessly into babbling brook
And the hushing whisper of the breeze.
Away from the pain of the human world,
Embracing the land of the ever-young,
Captivated and enchanted by the fey realms.

Love to others is uncontainable,elusive, out of sight,
Uncatchable,unknowable,unfathomable,
Yet it keeps them alive and awake.
Love can be the emptiness, the void,
A place for receiving and emptying out,
A place of undoing, letting go.

Love lives in unexpected places,
Beyond all reason and attachment and outcome.
It just is…
Love happens unexpectedly,
Seeking a place further and deeper
Than our understanding.

Love Happens...
