When Love Arrives. . .

What an enigma,
this weightless joy.
These rare and rapid pulsations,
that spasm and sparkle like glass.
It is as though some part of me,
long imprisoned, has been released.
I have been made spacious by this feeling.
The elements have fallen in the perfect order.
And I, as if in the grip of some strange magic,
am racing, tumbling, laughing and breathless.
through the bleak, windblown city streets,
headlong into your strong and gentle arms.


Written for The Sunday Whirl using the words below.

It certainly sounds like love!

You've described the enigma well.

I can feel your love... the intense emotions and exhilirating feelings... I really like the ending, too.

Absolutely beautiful, Susannah. Can't wait to fall in love again, if it's at all like what you've described.

Love, sweet love. From beginning to end you open up the experience through your words. This is a beautiful contribution to the Whirl.

A great poem Susannah.
The way it reads has the reader, racing, tumbling, laughing and breathless.
Thanks for a great read.

Thanks everyone for your comments. It is good to see you all. x

Wonderful use of the words Susannah. You made them dance and sing. Whereas, I spilled them all over the place. Gotta love the diversity. Thanks for visiting,

Elizabeth

Susannah, you have captured that feeling when love hits you right in the heart, head, and gut. I loved this; I'm sure many have reminders of that first blossom of love.

I miss that "high," but after 13 years, I must admit I wouldn't trade Lex to feel that high again! Great stuff! Peace, Amy
