A Day

The breaking of a gold'n dawn,
Shrouds all in its loveliness,
Happiness mirrored in those amber irises,
a poignant sentiment unseen in crisis.

       The golden arrows dispelling the darkened meadows
       and light chasing away the shadows;
       Like this morn comes in its glory,
       just leaving us staring in awe.

The morning gives way to Even,
The evening finally gives way to the Lady Dark,
And the blazing orb which once was giving us its warmth,
Now hangs all cool condensed, like a silvery medallion,
On Night's beautiful throat.

        Such is the transition, such is the beauty
        Ephemeral, Eloquent and Elusive.
        It happens everyday yet seldom do we see,
        Or wait to admire nature reigning supreme, 
        The image is capricious,
        Don't try to capture it,
        And one more day is over,
        Have you ever realized it!?

Best quotes on Love

If you open your heart, love opens your mind. So here’s a collection of my personal favourite quotes on Love by greatest of all writers and thinkers. I do hope you all enjoy and relish this selection and make more and more room for Love in your lives. 

I Love you without knowing how, or when, or from where. I Love you straightforwardly, without complexities or pride; so I love you because I knew no other way than this, where ‘I’ does not exist nor ‘You’. 
So close that your hand on my chest is my hand, 
so close that your eyes close as I fall asleep.
~Pablo Neruda

Absence diminishes small loves and increases great ones, as the wind blows out the candle and fans the bonfire.
~Francois Duc De La Rochefaucauld

Just as the wind dances in my hair, as the ocean massages my thoughts, as the sun blankets me in happiness, and as the earth travels with me across universal challenges, so all the elements of your love fill my life.

Love is the emblem of eternity; it confounds all notion of time; effaces all memory of a beginning, all fear of an end.
~Germaine De Stael

Love is that enviable state that knows no envy or vanity, only empathy and a longing to be greater than oneself.
~Joe McMahon

True Love is eternal, infinite and always like itself. It is equal and pure, without violent demonstrations: it is seen with white hairs and is always young in the heart.
~Honore De Balzac

The most wonderful of all things in life is the discovery of another human being with whom one’s relationship has a growing depth, beauty and joy as the years increase. This inner progressiveness of love between two human beings is a most marvelous thing; it cannot be found by looking for it or by passionately wishing for it. It is a sort of Divine accident, and the most wonderful of all things in life.
~Sir Hugh Walpole

Love is not having to say anything, but to look into another’s eyes and be completely content.

There is no fear in love; but perfect love casteth out fear: because fear hath torment. He that feareth is not made perfect in love.
~1 John 4:18

If we don’t tell them we love them, the ones we fall in love with are usually gone before we had the chance to lose them ourselves.

Love has no desire but to fulfill itself. 
But if you Love and must needs have desires, let these be your desires: 
 To melt and be like a running brook that sings its melody to the night. 
To know the pain of too much tenderness,
    To be wounded by your own understanding of love,
And to bleed willingly and joyfully.
To wake at dawn with a winged heart and give thanks for another day of loving;
To rest at noon hour and meditate love's ecstasy;
To return home at eventide with gratitude; 
And then to sleep with a prayer for the beloved and a song of praise upon your lips.
~Khalil Gibran

If you begin your day with Love in your heart, 
Peace in your nerves and Truth in your mind, 
You not only benefit from their presence but also bring them to the others, 
to your family and friends, 
and to all those whose destiny draws across your path that day.

True Love begins when nothing is looked for in return.
~Antoine De Saint-Exupery

Since Love grows within you, so beauty grows. For Love is the beauty of the soul.
~Saint Aurelius Augustine

The greatest gift you can give to others is the gift of unconditional love and acceptance.
~Brian Tracy

But let there be spaces in your togetherness and let the winds of the heavens dance between you. Love one another but make not a bond of love: let it rather be a moving sea between the shores of your souls.
~Khalil Gibran

I see my fated stars in your eyes. They melt me like the sun does snow.
~From the movie Dangerous Beauty

To Love another person is to see the face of God.
~Victor Hugo

From every human being there rises a light that reaches straight to Heaven, and when two souls that are destined to be together find each other, the streams of light flow together and a single brighter light goes forth from their united being.
~Ba al Shem Tov

Your task is not to seek love but merely to seek and find all the barriers within yourself that you have built against it.

There’s this place in me where your fingerprints still rest, your kisses still linger, and your whispers softly echo. It’s the place where a part of you will forever be a part of me.
~Gretchen Kemp

Dwell not on the past. Use it to illustrate a point then leave it behind. Nothing really matters except what you do now in this instant of time. From this moment onwards you can be an entirely different person, filled with love and understanding, ready with an outstretched hand, uplifted and positive in every thought and deed.
~Eileen Caddy

Sometimes your nearness takes my breath away; and all the things I want to say can find no voice. Then, in silence, I can only hope my eyes will speak my heart.
~Robert Sexton
