Love is a Seed.

Love is a seed.

It starts as a thought,
a feeling,
an emotion,
a mutual attraction
an intention (a motive),
a word.

But when it grows
green leaves and boughs,
pink buds, red flowers,
in little actions
and big deeds
and finds its deep brown & black roots
in each other’s being
becoming a huge fruit laden tree;
then it is Love.

…not until then.

LOVE starts as a seed
but should end up
as a full blown,
fully grown,
strong, sheltering

    Beautiful word painting on the emotion of love! Every line resonated with me perfectly. Thank you very much, for writing it out for hopeless romantics like me, Dr. Koshy 🙂
