why we love

because I and you
melt & diffuse
into an us

of limitless joy

About Susan L Daniels

I am a firm believer that politics are personal, that faith is expressed through action, and that life is something that must be loved and lived authentically--or why bother with any of it?

    Beautifully, simultaneously spare and deep.

  2. Intense! deep! short, to the point, but says too much! Susan has written yet another beautiful song!
    Incidentally I find the earlier draft with melt more powerful! so what about melt and diffuse into an us – as this could capture all of the the physics and psychology of why people love?

    • You are making Susan blush with your lush praise of such a spare poem 🙂 reading it that way:

      because I and you
      melt & diffuse
      into an us

      of limitless joy

      Does not in any way inhibit the pronoun play, and does add a lovely depth.

      Think it’s growing from 11 to 13 words now!

      Great suggestion!

    • Hey–counting on my fingers, it’s late in your corner of the world–thanks for reading & commenting on these 2 poems so late…. Almost the 15th where you are

  3. Hmmm–let’s go with guessing we have similar natures, and if we are as similar as I think we are, you had to be laughing 🙂

    Yes, better to call it a lucky guess that give credit to those shaky, shady, unpredictable intuitions.

    Truth so wholly and beautifully said in such a small number of words.
