Love, the mother of all 4 letter words. The elixir of life for peace and tranquility on Earth. The one desire that binds manking giving her hope, stability, and unity. All this, in both the public and private realms.
"Better to have loved and lost rather than never to have loved at all," is a very popular saying that we all have heard. But in reflection, how true it is. Love, in its simplest form, is 100% pure---until, as sometimes happens, it wears off. We may then ask if it wears off, then maybe it was only a (an extended/prolonged) mirage.
This is Haiku Poetry. A short poem with poetic images that can transcend the limitation imposed by the usual language and thinking. What if we took that imagery into the realm of human nature? While attempting to do this I tried to stay within the bounds of contemplative poetry that indicates a moment, sensation, impression or drama of a specific moment in nature. However, I broadened this framework to at times include moral, historical, scientific, legal, social, etc., issues as well. I believe, by doing this, we are introduced to a unique and creative imagery that paints a mental picture where you the reader can find much deeper meanings in which to relate.
love, what a scene
like utopia, a dream
only, never seen
