This morning I pulled up a card from the ‘Journey of Love’ deck.
It was the card of ‘Lovers’.
How beautiful it is to love, to fall in love, to be in love ~ the feeling of new lovers.
The card I pulled out says it all. My tears rolled down, the flower of my heart expanded, opening up its petals to the morning sun.
I love to love.
I am a lover.
He is my beloved.
She is my beloved.
They are all my beloved.
And finally my lover above and beyond all.
Thank you God.
Lovers by Alana Fairchild
Love is a magic word
that holds the Universe together.
It is both an emotion
And something ephemeral that lives like a fire’s glow
Or the pink light on the clouds
After the sun has set.
It is alive and yet, indefinable.
It causes the heart to beat more rapidly,
Feelings to show
And young people to write, sing, dance
And become totally immersed in its hold.
Love can beckon coyly,
Or flaunt itself with wanton abandon.
Love can live and grow seemingly forever,
Or vanish in a fleeting moment
When we least suspect.
And in the twilight of our years
Reflecting on the life we have lived
It is love which colors
Every turn and twist of our memory.
And when we pass from this earthly plane
It will be love
That will light our soul
On its journey home.
