A Grain of Thought and A Grain of Love

Is this all?
Just a grain of thought
That makes your mind go round
Giving rationale to your whole dream world
Sweeping you in its enchanting abyss
Swoosh you go in its clutch
Liberating yourself
In its nest

Is this all?
Just a grain of love
That you so wishfully desire
To sway you in its mesmerizing dance
As it excites your inner cores
Freeing your soul’s scuff
And surrender
To love

  1. So sad with just a grain of love.. maybe a weakness to build on?

  2. For some it maybe but for some just a grain of love is enough to move tough stones out of their life.. :)

  3. The grain can be a powerful seed ~ Whether dreamland or the thoughts of love, it can excite us to many possibilities ~

    1. So very true Grace, it too has the power of either make us or break us; make us a better human being or the worst one too. :)

  4. These twin stanzas work very well together - such wonderful compliments of thought and love.

  5. I agree with all the above. Very nice!
