Love knows no reason or season
Needs no motive or gain
Flowers exuberance
In pummeling palms and ecstatic smiles
Prospers in soft lingering gazes
Strange at first, evolving to familiarity
Where one dainty creation
Purifies the innermost sanctum of man
A creature that erases lost hope and fuels the spirit engine
Where in the focal center is a few quanta of light
Glistening within sparkling irises
Projecting a love that expands exponentially
To pave entrances to every being in her path
A radiation of juvenile splendor, of unadulterated innocence
That infects eye-to-eye and smile-to-smile
As inner-child lurks out of her cocoon
To flutter her wings
And summon forgotten beauty
