Love is...

Love is…

The moment of birth releases serotonin

Cerebral cortex fires pulses of electricity

In the blood and fluids

All the possibilities in the world

Screaming at this abrupt entrance

Soothed by tears and coos and sobs

When 1+1=3 or 4

If twins run in your family

Love is…

Locking eyes with that person the first time

Hearts beat in harmony

Faint beads of perspiration over lip

Not quite butterflies

More like lightin bugs

Flickering warmth in belly

Soft gestures connect energies

Love is…

A canyon deep and wide

An ocean vast and dark

A mountain jagged and steep

A river babbling and fresh

A prairie open and hidden

A desert hot and demanding

A state of being and way of life
