Defining Love

When asked to define the word love My first thought was... it's impossible to explain love How does one descibe the wind How does one describe the cool fresh morning air The brilliant sunshine that makes us feel so alive It's a feeling inside that can't be put into mere words When you first experience it, no one needs to tell you The experience overwhelms you, it takes over your soul You walk on air oblivious to your surroundings You smile a lot at silly things You walk into things that someone Has strangely placed in your way Like street lamps or fire hydrants You forget important meetings With the excuse that you lost your date book You feel like you have a raging ferver But you're cool as a cucumber outside Friends worry, wondering about your strange behaviour But then soon recognize the symptoms The same symptoms that 99.9% of human beings Have experienced at least once in their lifetime Ah love, sweet love Is there any greater feeling in life Most emphatically I say NO! © Jack Ellison 2014

    You've described Dragon. But he loves himself most of all. Yep! It makes him do crazy stuff. He loves to win, too, so more crazy stuff. Tho love doesn't make him keep hitting the trees... or does it? We need his attention back on his flying and landings... I think he hits the trees cause... He can't see the forest for the trees. Snicker... Oh, Oh! He heard me... Gotta run... And we're off... Oh by the way... He loves to run too... And when I trip him... He STILL hits the trees... Silly Dragon!

    Loved this, Kenny. Love is the air we breathe and water we drink. The lack of love brings so much sorrow and pain. I'm glad you have that taste of love, Kenny Sending you great big hugs.....PS...I LOVE YA!

    Been thinking about this a lot lately with issues in my life Jack - we don't say i love you often enough - yes maybe to our partners , kids but not to friends who we love in a different way. So just letting you know jack you are very special and i love you as a dear friend. Hugs Jan xxx
