Nothing But Love

September 8, 2018 life love

Love of the particular
is like a lever
which pries open the heart
at least a crack,
and let’s the light
of the universal
shine through.

Each beautiful sight,
each beautiful person,
is like a glimpse
of a greater beauty
we do not always see.

And when we love
without attachment,
the lever becomes a key,
which opens the door
to everything that can be loved,
to a universe
that is nothing but love.
