'Two Hearts Carried' (New Poem) (Tim Kavi's VALENTINES BE MINE FOR NINE! Posting 3)

Two Hearts Carried
by Tim Kavi 

sometimes love
is such a hasty reaction
that it seems
two hearts
were carried with the wind

Yet there in the mercy
of dialectic's unfolding
there is a settling
in the nest
of some high cliff
where lovers belong
after an act of great love

as sometimes
it was a wind
borne by the very breath
of love itself

and sometimes
there is no understanding
even among the wisest
as to what love has done

or what has been done
in the name of love
of what legends love has brung

there is always the otherwise
of love's surprise
do not throw yourself
young lovers
nor off the cliffs be flung

but carry each other
up higher on the wings of love
turn to each other
again and again
climb up higher
as your ladder of love
has another rung

sometimes one
will carry both hearts
with such care
sometimes the other
will be made alive
bravely to love

to look again
at the new place of love
for your might
has this time
brought you there

for in your nest
let there be no night
but only a teaching
lessons for each other
on the next stages of flight

no leveling I say
fly again
fly again
break up the hardened ground
plant your seeds of love
while in that lofty place

let it stand and grow
for two hearts were carried
by destiny's throw

into the unknown
borne by the wind
of love
carried with grace
two carried hearts
always come again

to the nest of love.

Poet's Afterword:  Posting #3 of Tim Kavi's VALENTINES BE MINE FOR NINE is a special new love poem. It's a poem that tells us that sometimes love responds to all of Nature, and  sometimes it is born of struggle but always it is the carrying of two each other and by each other. ~~TK
