EROS/ROSE

RoseEros
let us call it EROS
or ROSE
let us not call it LOVE
anymore
let EROS
or ROSE
cover this ground we walk on—
a flower, a force—
let us certainly not call it
CHARITY (caritas)
let us not even
call it AFFECTION
or DESIRE
let EROS/ROSE cover it
let us acknowledge
our bone knowing:
what draws us towards
and anchors us.
We may call it OPENNESS
but, better,
EROS /ROSE

    I Love….

    let us acknowledge
    our bone knowing:
    what draws us towards
    and anchors us.

    So direct at the root

    I adore to be exhorted to think of new ways to address and approach love.
