WHEN LOVE SPEAKS (LISTEN WITH YOUR HEART)

When love speaks, it speaks softly.
Aspiring to lofty things, of how hearts sing
in a harmony that warms and soothes.
It moves them to a pinnacle
that other cynical people cannot attain.

When love speaks, it speaks softly.
A language that needs not word,
nor intention. Or any mention of past
indiscretions. Love expresses in a way
that says all it ever needs in a breathless sigh.

When love speaks, it speaks softly,
o’er the expanse of time, o’er the length
of distant miles. O’er fathoms of seas and lakes
it takes a tender thought to conjoin two souls
across a heartfelt connection in loving perfection.

When love speaks, it speaks softly,
When love speaks, it is heard loudly.
When love speaks, knowing hearts believe.
When love speaks, nothing else needs to be said
when love speaks.

A reprise of a poem I had written in response to Marie Elena Good’s poem, “Love Speaks”. It fit the Day 23 prompt at Poetic Asides November Chapbook Challenge – WHEN_____, so I’m sharing it again. I miss Marie!
