Draw, Speak and Describe Love

Draw, Speak and Describe Love

Laala Kashef Algahta

If asked to draw love
I would start at the basics.
A red crayon and a big,
full heart.

If asked to speak love
I would sing like Simon & Garfunkel
and let their words pour out
of my mouth like gossamer
or silk.

If asked to describe love
I would say it's something
between a kaleidoscope
and a yo yo. Disappearing
before we can catch
a glimpse, but leaving
such brilliant patterns
that we forget to mind
its absence.
