From A Lover To A Poet

on

A famous Greek philosopher, Plato once said, “At the touch of love, everyone becomes a poet”.

It left me wondering, does love really have such power? Can it turn someone into a poet just with a slight brush? What about the poets who have never experienced this bright lovable fall? But then it struck me, we are all in love, aren’t we? The love of our family, the love of art, the love of animals. The world is so full of love that you can’t find a way to escape it!

  10. So true!!!!! Your post reminded me of a beautiful quote from Hafiz,
    “A poet is someone who can pour light into a cup then raise it to nourish your beautiful parched, holy mouth.”

    Have a wonderful day, and much love 🙂

  14. I loved this! There is love everywhere and the more we see this the more we realize that we are not alone. Often we feel disconnected, but love unites us all. Great poem. 🙂

  19. I really loved your opening quote ““At the touch of love, everyone becomes a poet”. Then we watched you weave your way to the final line “The world is so full of love that you can’t find a way to escape it!” Really Great way to end with the final conclusion – We are all Poets?

  24. yes, we all love and maybe it’s the injection of new love that brings out the nascent poet that resides in all of us or gives the active poet more material. i know it works for me. poetry and i never got along, yet shorty after meeting my bride to be, i authored a five stanza poem with perfect rhyme and meter. where did that come from but the injection of new love.
