love binds all

Hello, friends!

I found this poem tucked away in a random folder of unreleased poetry and realized it really spoke to me…. it, in fact, required me to release it this week.

Poetry in many ways is a summoning.

An ancient language extracted from deep within a poet that presents itself with varying degrees of urgency. Sometimes the words rise slowly. Other times they need to be called forth, even exorcised.

I know. Weird, eh?

Not sure I ever intended to release this poem for public consumption. So, I am sincerely hoping these words speak to at least one person who needs to hear them. That, in some way, their balm may provide some peace.

Maybe (at least) some quiet in the maelstrom of our lives.

Please let me know your thoughts and reactions to the poem in the Comment Section below. I look very forward to hearing from you.

love binds all

in divine devotion

bides a secular notion

that love binds all

through our sacrifice

through soft surrender

a poetic missal

a heartfelt hymnal

writ words of love

inscribed in blood

inscribed with grace

a tome unsealed

love’s truths revealed

in love’s firm embrace

we find patience

we find strength

  1. You know I’m not so much into the love stuff, but this poem was beautiful. I love the lines, “that love binds all through our sacrifice through soft surrender.” Definitely true!

    1. You and me both, PS! It can all sometimes sound so trite like a greeting card… if overdone. Glad this rare little gem worked for you! 🙏🏻🌹🍷✨

  2. Such a subtle mix of secular and sacred here Pat. The tome seems like you’re alluding to the Bible but it could be any other ancient book that reveals love as the source of everything. Bagavad Gita, Koran, Torah, Triptika would also fit the poem nicely too.

  3. Love, such a misunderstood, misused word. Love is what connects us and this amazing universe. We don’t fall ‘in love’, we are love and you put it so beautifully in this poem ❤️

  4. Beautiful poem. It alludes to the Bible as found in 1 Corinthians 13, the love ch…of faith, hope and love , love is the greatest virtue; without love , I am only a “ resounding gong or a clanging symbol”. Ultimate love, the basis of Christianity , was expressed through blood and grace ! Thank you, PS Conway, for your inspirational poetry !ruby
