Three Poems for Love

The Moon of Your Love

Not a single soul lacks

a pathway to you.

There’s no stone,

no flower –

not a single piece of straw –
lacking your existence.

In every particle of the world,

the moon of your love

causes the heart
of each atom to glow.

Beg for Love

Beg for Love.

Consider this burning, and those who

burn, as gifts from the Friend.
Nothing to learn.
Too much has already been said.
When you read a single page from
the silent book of your heart,
you will laugh at all this chattering,
all this pretentious learning.

The madness of love

The madness of love

Is a blessed fate;

And if we understood this
We would seek no other:
It brings into unity
What was divided,
And this is the truth:
Bitterness it makes sweet,
It makes the stranger a neighbor,
And what was lowly it raises on high.
