Love Tiptoes In

What strange exotic silent veil is this
That covers you with canopies of bliss?
A simple glance into a strangerís eyes
Touches on a soul you recognize

Two strangers caught within the veil of chance
And suddenly both spirits dance a dance

Unlike a force that ever came before
You feel his essence drawing near to yours
your timid spirit falls into his grips
No words can find a place upon your lips

Then in the silence of the lunar light
Love tiptoes in and quickly steals the night

Love the title...love these thoughts...

Then in the silence of the lunar light
Love tiptoes in and quickly steals the night

so beautiful, Elizabeth

I love the last two lines, wonderful ending to a beautiful poem.

There are places inside our souls -
that have never been touched.
There are places inside our hearts -
that need to be loved this much.

What a gem this is Elizabeth ... I would love to see all the aching hearts of poetry
fall beneath the magic of chance encounters

There really is something to "love at first sight."  I've always thought that we are all connected, some more than others of course.
I've heard people argue that it is just infatuation....I'm not so sure! I know of couples that have been married thirty years and that was how it started for them.

Aside from those points, this is another excellent poem Elizabeth, you have a way of getting your readers to deposit their mind right into your work.........ethome..

oooooLiz, this is sooo romantic..sigh..I love it! ellie

Summers haunting melody
that awakens
the butterflies,
calling them to join
the dance
in their silent song
of praise to God.

Liz, this is wonderful! It's a beautiful description of how love can just slip into your life.

Instant awareness, like looking up and seeing your own eyes peering back if you dare to hold the gaze. I love the title as well...wonderful poem, Elizebeth.

Your comments to this poem are wonderful. There is more to "Love at first sight" than meets the eye.
I am so glad that others can relate to this.I wasn't sure
Thank you all

Elizabeth~
I think many of us have fallen
under the spell of that 'instant glance'
at one time or another in our lives.

You tell it well.

Elizabeth,

As usual, wonderful work.  "Love tip toes in and steals the night."  A beautiful finish to a lovely poem.
