Please welcome the fabulous Shree from Heartsongs Blog. She is a talented writer and artist who lovingly (and last-minute-ly) stepped in for me after my fall in the shower today. Be as wonderful to her as she has been to me — and send buckets of rawrLove her way in the comments and over at her blog! http://heartsongsblog.wordpress.com/
Round and round it goes,
A game of cat and mouse,
Like a game of chess, with its kings and queens,
Pawns and knights,
A Bishop or 2
Its board is never
Just black or white
Instead it’s made of beautiful, shimmering hues
Colours of a rainbow
It is vibrant and full of energy,
Yet as subdued as shades of pastels.
It can be strong and bold,
Pushing barriers, breaking down walls,
Yet soft and gentle and sweet,
Like satin on your skin,
Sweet honey on your lips.
It can ignite with such sudden force,
The passions that lie within you
It can soothe with its calming balm.
It makes you close your eyes and hold in your breath,
while it opens your mind and fills your heart with life.
It will dry your tears, that sadness once stole,
and make you smile, through your tears of joy.
People say that it hurts,
people say that it scars,
people say that it can turn ugly,
People are always saying things……
What I think I should say,
Is that we let love be love,
A gift from God, brought down by the Angels above,
Don’t let us taint love,
with our human weaknesses.
Do you play chess? Do you let love be love?
