You fall in love with a place, a person, an animal
A painting, a piece of music, an actor, a movie.
You fall in love with a moment, a point in time
A place of quiet, a space of meaning and significance
A recipe, a piece of clothing, a book, a flavor of ice cream
And so it goes.
And then it so happens that one day a flower blooms within,
A ray of light seems to emerge straight out of you
A fountain bursts forth into radiant, shimmering jewel tones
Spraying music and light and fun all around.
And then it dawns: You have fallen in love
And now it is all covered, nothing left out, no one remains untouched
This is the loveliest love of all.
It is never alone, it spares not a soul
It starts pouring out generously, dissolving the worlds and stars and skies and oceans and you.
And that’s the awesomest love of all.
