The Threshold of Love

From the edge of love uncertain
To the pour of passion's dare
Is but a hairline of a moment
In the birth of heart's aware

It's the coming of life's purpose
To the doorway of its time
Opened by another's wanting
To the course of love sublime  

In the patient threshold waiting
Stands the figure of his soul
And the other half my being
Its completion to the whole

To approach is all my wanting
To step forth is in my wait
To tread the footsteps longing
Is the certain of my fate

Elizabeth Santos

Elizabeth, you continue to amaze me with your gift. . .

"The pour of passion's dare. . . "  I love that line. . . standing on the precipice of love. . .too often we fall in. . . but isn't it fun?

Beautiful, my friend. .

Delicately presented, this piece interprets that threshold with truth, intuition, and heartfilling inspiration. Very tender.

Elizabeth,
Your poem is exquisite
I can say little more,
Except to pay another visit
And read it again once more.
PS. I've had alot of trouble with my computer
And if I have to bring it in to be fixed I'll
be off the air for some time. I hope not, but I'll try to let you know If it's necessary. Love Sy

I have to say now, after reading many of your poems, that I am in awe at your talent.  Haven't yet read one that was less than strikingly beautiful!  I don't always reply, because you always have such rave reviews from many others before me, but I love them nonetheless...Just wanted to let you know, your work has not gone unnoticed from me!   Bravissimo !!

Thank each of you for your kind remarks.Sven, Sy, Hoot, and PoetFemme,
I was deeply touched
But I must truthfully admit, I did not concieve the first verse to this poem. It came to me in a dream last night and in the dream I was memorizing this verse, and when I awoke it was still in my head, so I ran down to my computer and typed it out. Which leads me to suspect, I may have read it somewhere. I hope it's not plagiarized. If so, please speak up, dear poet, or forever hold your peace.If this is not the case, it was a phantom spirit that visited me last night, who wrote this poetry.And I thank him.
Liz

Lizzy Lizzy - you're leaving me in your dust - I can't keep up!!!

Never mind - the world would be deprived if you stopped.

Echo, Thank you!

Kamla,
I'm riding out on galloped horse
Kicking dust throughout the place
And Kamla stands there silently
With dusty dust upon her face
For I must continue without fail
To carry out my earthly quest
The world would simply not survive
If I don't write my very best
You are just too cute!
Love ya,
Liz
