Love Comes Quietly

We are awakened through poetry.
We are affirmed through ritual.
We are fulfilled through music.

Robert Creeley wrote an exquisite poem on love...

Love Comes Quietly

Love comes quietly,
drops around me,
on me,
in the old way.

What did I know,
thinking myself
able to go alone
all the way.

Some years ago, after I spoke the poem aloud a few times...the words seem to take on their own if the poem demanded to be sung. So I did. And so I do. And love is still coming quietly on every note.

As I say,"There's a life time" or was it "This one is worth a whole lifetime"? Either way, you made a perfect fit,from within your perfection free zone!
