A Life Force

I love his voice caressing my ears
Like chocolate slowly melting in the mouth,
I love his steady gaze as I laugh and dance;
Like sun on the skin a summer’s day.

I love the Blackbird having his morning bath
with splash and preening, making feathers shine,
I love his morning song so full of light
praising the dawn, praising life.

I love my best friend in every way,
her bright blue eyes, her shining hair;
I love the care that shines as we meet,
the laughter we share and at times grief.

I trust her without hesitation,
she holds my hand and I hold hers;
We shelter each other and we fly free.

Could that be what I am trying to say,
Love is a life force
Whatever the situation, love enhances,
Expands our life, expands all creation.

  1. Miriam,

    Love is a life force
    Whatever the situation, love enhances,
    Expands our life, expands all creation.

    You are not “TRYING” to say it. You said it!
    and PERFECTLY SAID, at that
    You’ve provided a bit of a soft place to land in these scary times. Thank you.

  2. Miriam, such a beautiful and tender celebration of the forces within our lives! Your friend is described with such love and sounds like the ultimate blessing in life. Ahh … that blackbird has won a dear place in your heart, I can tell! Your final two lines resonate with truth and clarity how love is at the core of our very existence:

    ‘Whatever the situation, love enhances,
    Expands our life, expands all creation.’

    Sublime! Xx ❤️

    • Annika, thank you for this beautiful comment. I am smiling this drizzly morning. You have spotted the two mainstays 🤗, the value of a friend like this is worth more than gold and precious gifts. As to the Blackbird, yes, I do adore him and we sing together.

      Thank you for quoting those final line. They felt and feel so important and true. Bless. ❤️.

      Miriam
