If Love is a Language #poetry #poem #photography

my sandy heart
my sandy heart

If love is a language

it is spoken with the eyes

candle lit low

that look can not be disguised


if love is a language

it is spoken with the lips

red hot spice

etched with fingertips


if love is a language

it is strongest on one’s knees

caught on the four winds

inhaling salty breeze


 if love is a language 

I could never dare to speak

words that I’d rather 

whisper in the deep

Je t’aime avec mes …


What language do you speak love in???

In two or more languages is the Poet’s United prompt.

  1. Thank you giving this beautiful piece of poetry to us… je t’aime, moi aussi, c’est mieux en français … I prefer it in French, much more romantic than any other language…Well done!!!


      1. Thanks, please do not misunderstand, I have been through unbelievable moments only with English… French sounds romantic…


  2. __So much to love’s language: a word spoken; a thought, sensed; unsaid trust; moments, selflessly given; eyes that brighten; a touch; a nod; a smile above the hurt, to understand the hurt.


  3. oh it is def strongest on ones knees, that is for sure…love is a language not too many master….it needs only the words required, but is spoken in so many other different ways….


  4. Fabulous poem, I love it–the beginning made me think of the old Burt Bacharach song–Dusty Springfield was one who made it a hit. (The Look of Love)
