Melting Point


The moment I saw you I fell in love with the universe. Like raindrops rippling a still pond, our concentric circles coalesced - moving past duality and melting into Oneness. Susan Ashley May 14, 2019 ~ First Place ~ Contest: May 2019 Premier 5 (Max 5 Lines) Sponsor: Brian Strand ............... - The relationship between love and Oneness - *The Sufi poet Rumi wrote; “The lover asked his beloved, do you love yourself more than you love me? The beloved replied, I have died to myself but I live for thee.”* *Ram Das said; “Oneness is the source of love. Real love is the One celebrating itself as two.”*

This is getting bad, I commented on this poem before-now I see my comment has disappeared. Is it gremlins at this site or else at my computer? My dear friend, congratulations on this fine poem being awarded first place. A very deserving award. Fantastic imagery and depths. A fav..

Awesome! The moment I read the initial 2 lines I could have stopped there, and pondered about love at first sight! The rest of the poem builds up on that gripping introduction, till two merge into one. Of late I have noticed the striking force of your shorter poems...goes to prove what a talented writer you are, my friend. ~ Warm regards & Hugs // paul
