“I do not write about love
as if I have invented it.
I write about love
because thoughts of you
inspire self-forgetfulness.
And because writing about you
gives birth to a star.
These stars sit inside me
where there was once
Kamand Kojouri

Faraaz Kazi
“The skies bend, the time stops, the lanes move and the fires dance,
It can mean only one thing that I am with you.
You are enigmatic yet so beautiful that I have lost my sense,
You are as immaculate as the unadulterated morning dew
And your beauty leaves me in a mystified trance.
I do not foresee what you and I will be
But I promise to be with you till the rocks keep meeting the sea.”
Faraaz Kazi

فریدون مشیری
“روز اول، كه دل من به تمنای تو پر زد
چون كبوتر، لب بام تو نشستم
تو به من سنگ زدی، من نه رميدم، نه گسستم

باز گفتم كه : ” تو صيادی و من آهوی دشتم
تا به دام تو درافتم همه جا گشتم و گشتم
حذر از عشق ندانم، نتوانم

کوچه، پرواز با خورشید*”
فریدون مشیری, پرواز با خورشید

Kamand Kojouri
“My love,
you are driving the entire world mad.
The nightingales are committing suicide
one by one out of jealousy of your voice.
The roses took one glance at your beauty
and folded themselves from shame.
The trees now only whisper your name
and the sky hasn’t stopped crying since you looked up.
Have pity on us, my love.
We have already broken all the mirrors and glass
out of fear that you will forget us
and fall in love with yourself
once you see what we all
cannot stop seeing.”
Kamand Kojouri

“Love is wind for the soul”
D. Antoinette Foy

the waterfall enumerates the deeds of the dew . . .”

My musings were superfluous and serious as well.
But now the words dance with me.
I sing with them
and we create poetry.”

C.L. Foster
“I wanted to write some words you'd remember.

Words so alert they'd leap from the paper,
crawl up your shoulder, lie by your ears,
and purr themselves to you like baby kittens,
but it was rainy, so I laid there and daydreamed about you.”
C.L. Foster, Best Thing I Never Had

Kamand Kojouri
“One of those awfully simple
and beautiful days
with you
that makes me afraid of dying,
makes me afraid of not being.
When the soft 6 o’clock sun
is slowly sinking behind the harbour,
and your smile, effortless and tidy,
makes time take flight.
You save me from death
but also from lifeless living.
With you,
nothing's wasted on me.
The music of the breeze, the colours
of children’s footsteps, the dancing
trees—I drink them all
and, what’s more, you drink these
with me.
One of those insignificant days
when we do nothing and achieve
nothing, and yet, chasing the ducks
and sharing my last stick of gum
with you is everything.”
Kamand Kojouri

“There is something so captivating about her,
like a butterfly, she flutters
about from person to person,
— always leaving them to want more!”
Anmol Kang, Of Love Lust & Lies: Anmol Kang

Ada Limon
“To this day, I will swear that the hardest poems to write are love poems. Especially when the world feels brutal and desperate and hope is hard to find. If I try to write a love poem, my brain says: How can you write about love when what we need is health care and racial equality and a way to heal the whole goddamn earth?

And still my pen goes to the page, and wants to shout about love. I suppose there is always some part of me that cannot resist writing about the hummingbird that survives the hurricane.”
Ada Limon

“You began with just one rock mid-puddle of the front yard—
we named it “Rock Hudson”—but then came two more to bookend the mud—
“Rock-Around-the-Clock” and “Elizabeth Taylor.”
Carla Schwartz, Signs of Marriage: Poems by Carla Schwartz

“The wind that threatened to crash us
into a cliff almost broke us up
until the moment we engaged the motor
and found out who we were.”
Carla Schwartz, Intimacy with the Wind

Abhijit Naskar
“Amantes Assemble Sonnet 63

Love is a lamp,
That the sane cannot light.
Peace is poetry,
That the sober cannot write.
Growth is green,
That the greedy cannot plant.
Insight is a state,
That the pompous cannot land.
Society is a cup of tea,
That the selfish cannot make.
World is a responsibility,
That the animals cannot take.
However, it's okay if the world feels too heavy.
Start by taking your neighborhood's responsibility.”
Abhijit Naskar, Amantes Assemble: 100 Sonnets of Servant Sultans

“Oceanic Ripples:

I was an untuned dusty guitar.
Like a fragrant breeze, you wafted in.
Your warmth wiped my loneliness.
Your tender touch tuned the strings.
I am now an ocean rippling endlessly in your kaleidoscopic dreams.
©Spriha Kant”

Tamara Rendell
“Tears fall like liquid leaves
into the streams and full,
autumn-coloured rivers of our blood
And liquid leaves become crystal
in our winter fortress
before they flow
shifting, changing
rich red by grace of autumn
and fertile in the spring”
Tamara Rendell, Lunar Fire

Abhijit Naskar
“Love-Abiding Law (The Sonnet)

Love is the master-key to social troubles,
Law is but an inferior and cheaper stand-in.
Instead of obsessing over cooking up more law,
Let's shift the focus on loving and caring.
Do you think love is nothing but a commercial object,
With your olympian authority which you can legalize!
Who do you think you are that you'll legalize order!
You can legalize toys, telephones, not love and light.
Know your place, o puny apes, on a puny little blue dot,
Before standing as authority bearing your badge of law.
There are more things in the vastness of time and space,
Than dreamt up in your paleolithic construct of law.
An ounce of love brings more change than a 100 pounds of law.
What we need is not law-abiding love, but love-abiding law.”
Abhijit Naskar, Esperanza Impossible: 100 Sonnets of Ethics, Engineering & Existence
