Psychí (1)

     Blue-eyed Lovely Lady                                 long Psychic connection
Dancing to the Blues                                  Filial bondings going
little introductions led                                Well beyond the forms
to Feeling the                                                of LOVE that
same groove                                                  came before
turned into                                                       turning 2
a life-                                                                 to 1

 

Due to the nature of responsive web pages, the mobile version of this poem loses it’s intended shape. For readability, here are the stanzas in order:

Blue-eyed Lovely Lady
Dancing to the Blues
little introductions led
to Feeling the
same groove
turned into
a life-

long Psychic connection
Filial bondings going
Well beyond the forms
of LOVE that
came before
turning 2
to 1

Philos (1)

Words
No need
We too can
Sit so silently
Contemplative
No need for words
We two commun-icate
Hundreds stories common
Psychic in the way we need not
say a single thing. Under
standing that
not even time matters between
spaces long
between our Sharings. Quantum
entanglement
perhaps. No matter, “I am glad you are here.”

Agape (1)

Tending
Tender care
For another being.
Identifying that your
Presence and attention
Deliver more than what was
Possible without your intervention.
God to creation, gardener to garden.
Husband to family, Mother to children.
Soldier to country, Poet to human being.

Many words for love

My father used to preach a sermon every year about Love. From an early age, I understood that love (like myriad words for ICE in Inuit) has many words and many subtle meanings. The sermon covered and explored the Greek words, plural, for love. Eros – Erotic, sexual love. Philos – Friendship, brotherly love. Agape – Self-sacrificial love. His conclusion was that Christ became the ultimate expression of Human Love by sacrificing his Human Being. The love of a parent to a child, believer and God.

I have added Psychí. Psyche, wife to Eros and goddess of the Soul. My granny used to say that her and my papaw believed they had a psychic connection and that they would try to see if they could connect their thoughts while he was away at work. Building on this idea, I am exploring a transcendental love of the married. Beyond finishing each other’s sentences, life-long couples can explore and develop a quantum entanglement that is connected beyond the other forms of love. This life energy that the two share leads to wordless exchanges and un-spoken understandings.
