Unsanctioned Love

A love that's born of sudden storm
Of that which came not of the mind
Is one of life's mysterious moments
But truly is a gift divine

It matters not what course it takes
What stream it follows, how swift the flow
Nor what the fathom of its depth
Nor what the hue in morning's glow

Love cannot be taught a measure
Its own volitient wing it flies
But it never needs apology
And no dishonor should it decry

Unsanctioned love in all its longing
Should be cherished for its worth
Whether or not it consummated
For the time it has on earth

No guilt or shame should pass its doorway
So let it be there in itself
Celebrate its silent presence
Allowed to consummate itself

Lovely.  You bring images of the randomness of flow that is love.  I enjoyed this very much.

Elizabeth,
Another gem another treasure,
I'll tuck away for my leisure.
I cannot tell you, how well you write,
It would sound corny, your out of sight.

The river flows,
Where it leads, we do not know
We can only hope that it leads us to one
Who will give this love, a love of one.

Beautiful as always Elizabeth. . . where do you find your ideas?

I like this, loved the feeling of just letting go and letting love take over...I am so scaird of that....for usually hurt follows love...but your poem makes it sound worth the risk

Sven,
Where do I find my ideas?
In my heart
Thank you for a beautiful response
Liz

lloveit,
No I don't believe in taking risks. What I meant was to just let love exist and celebrate its existance, even if you can't be together. But don't deny it.
Thanks for the comments,
Liz

I left work early today, not feeling well, so I am sitting here quietly reading before I go lay down for a little bit. I'll be back tonight, though!

Love flies
on slow warmed wings
feathers many hued
the love of friend
the love of child
the sudden rush
of love unallowed
and many feathers fall
lost in the swirl
of loss and time

But I agree - enjoy love while it is here, for each love is a precious thing.Beautiful verse, Lizzy.

Kamla,
I agree with the last part of your poem. Much can be lost from such a love if you were to fullfill the desires it brings. But we should allow it to exist and be happy in that alone. Of course, that would be next to impossible if you were close to that person. I'm glad I was never in that kind of situation.

I love that line "celebrate it's silent presence." We do need to acknowledge love wherever it may be..

Words of wisdom, my friend.
Love ... the greatest emotion,
sometimes enjoyed from a block away.
Very lovely verse, Elizabeth.
It flowed from a heart that sings.

Severn,
   Thanks for all your e-mails and "talks" You have been quite helpful.

Seaangel,
   That is one thing I am thankful for - that I know how to love. It is truly a precious gift, if you're lucky enough to find it

Marge,
   Words of love, coming from a heart full of love
Thanks, Marge
Hope you got your wrapping done

I really enjoy just sitting back & deciphering all the different renditions of Love that flow forth from out of all the hearts that are pouring out their cries unto someone or anyone..I envision the motive or the experience that has seeded the creation of each work of art...yes "ART"..for each poem or sonnet that comes forth from a person is a mirror of that soul..and that is precious--because no matter the content or the quality or the rhythm or the style or the topic; each is 100% precious in its' content, because each person is doing his or her utmost best and that makes all of them equal in my eyes and precious just like each
one of us is precious in him-own-self..Liz, I Love your style and the depth of your ex-
pressions. If you were a boat, you would be a submarine--ok! Each twist on a subject tells me about the experience of that persons life in that category..  Love you all

Femmes Father:
Thank you for those remarks.I guess my poems aren't very hard to decipher, since I haven't learned the art of writing between the lines. I don't have much finesse, just tell what comes flowing out.
Thanks

I like this one very much, Elizabeth! Sometimes, when love comes with many limitations placed upon it, it's easy to mourn what you can't have rather than celebrate what you have... and treasure the richness it's brought into your life!

You're telling me you don't have "finesse"  ????  Gees lady, if you only knew how much you have, your head would get big, so I'll just say I love every piece of yours I read!  I know each is a gem!

Dear Poet,
Your words are very kind
But my head will never get big, always humbled by the talent of so many great poets here at Passions. And especially by some of these young poets. I'm in awe of them.
Thank you
Liz
