Love Transforms

It is not about loving a person
or a cat
or a lovely garden reflecting myriad colours
or a gift kept close to heart
or a car that fulfills a hundred dreams
or a house where  soul seems to reside
or the attires that give the joy of being you.
Love surpasses all.
A wave  carries with it loads of energy
emanating from invisible cores of the being
circulating all around 
to lend  a fresh vision-
a vision of eternity, 
wherein the mundane considerations  find no  place,
where the  organs,
though still the same,

 refuse to behave the way they are trained,
Eyes shut themselves to open to subtler visions,
Ears turn inward to a wordless world,
Mind waits not for the lover to appear and make love.
Pain within carries the strength
enough to move the planets.
This is how love transforms.

    Yes ,indeed , love knows no boundaries , it transcends everything . If only the world knew how to love . Very well expressed .

    All the great Saints and philosophers said one thing that it’s love that is immortal, all else must perish. It’s hatred that takes effort, for love comes spontaneously.
    I’m not so grown-up to remarks on such a philosophical piece of art. But one thing can say my heart cherishes to read these poetic reflections……
