Drop of Love

A drop of love

Makes a difference that tips the balance

Brightness or darkness in eyes

Concave or convex crimson lips

Walk or dance in the middle of the street

Drown your name or shout it out loud.

A drop of love


A tattoo

In the soul

That remembers


Or add

In nostalgia

A drop of love stamps lines

On snowy ink starved paper

Hungry for words that girdle a heart

Or temporarily turn off the light in your marrow

Sacred center of the divine essence

Where it resides in the soul … which is everlasting.
