Sonnet

Sonnet

Love that is seen and unseen
witnessed or conducted in private
that is of the mind made flesh
and is known to those who know it
that it is restless and fuelled by desire
and yet finds peace and comfort at every turn
given that it is a state of grace that may be
enveloped in silence or celebrated

with boisterous effervescence because
it is above all things voice and word
and lisp of lips and it is in the eye
and in the ear and it moves the limbs
to embrace even as it heightens the breath
and lightens the burdens of life
