Some days I find love is allowing the weight of another to rest on my body pressing; making skin feel softer than it really is, the air ebb sweeter than it really is.
Other days I think love is conquering; like the urge to push my iron will against the world until one of us bleeds; until all that is left is me.
I find love comes visiting when resting my head down on a wide lap of a tree and waiting to see if my breath will catch sync with the slow hum of a bee.
Some days I find love is poetry—calculated, cunning, tyrannical, open, loud, unstoppable, feeling put on a pedestal.
Somedays I think love is the flow of water; just a universal and logical pull to the lowlands, escaping hungry roots and mouths, restless to melt in the ocean.
Other days I find love is patience; like the Earth, heavy and weary of her children; in their incessant wanting and asking, in their infant tantrums.
Some days I hear love as silence; in quiet exchange with the universe; an unspoken acknowledgement that this is how we love one another.
