Love is the highest ideal towards which any person can aspire.
“I resolve to promote the cause of love poets and love poetry, in the year 2009,”
Five ways that will help me reach my goal, include the following:
“I will make the promotion of the cause of love poets and love poetry, a labor of love.”
“I will promote the cause of love poets and love poetry, internationally.”
“I will mentor, commend and encourage, love poets to write and publish love poetry.”
“I will critique love poetry, in a positive and constructive way, for the further development and improvement, of the art of writing love poetry.”
“I will continue to expand and publish, my own collection of love poetry and prose that pertains to the writing and publication of love poetry.”
Love is the highest ideal that a person can achieve, in his or her lifetime. We know that we will attain that goal imperfectly at best, because we are human and not divine. But we always have access to that divine spark within us!
We all have the capacity to love, to show love and to pass love along to others, in one way or another. How we choose to do so, is a matter of personal choice. We always have to respect each other’s right to choose, even though we may not agree with or approve of their choices.
Love poets go one step further.
Love poets are in the unique position, of being able to write and publish love poetry. Those who are not love poets, cannot put what they understand as love, into the form of love poetry.
Effective love poetry speaks to the heart, soul, mind, intellect and will of human beings, everywhere. It has the capacity to touch the lives of human beings, in an extremely powerful way. There is power in just knowing about love. The knowledge of love, can lead to major changes for the better, in the lives of people everywhere.
Every single person has the capacity to absorb and retain the knowledge of love.
“Knowledge about love, is vital for human existence.”
“Love is essential, for the perpetuation of the human race.”
“Love is a central concept, in the lives of human beings everywhere.”
“Love is crucial, for the further development of humanity.”
Writing love poetry is a unique art, but the ability to write effective love poetry, is a gift given to only a few.
Unfortunately, love poetry is not always read, comprehended or appreciated by others. It may be glossed over completely, as many people prefer to read prose. While it is a good idea to read prose, one must remember that very often, prose is often a further interpretation of love poetry.
Love poetry is waiting to be discovered!
This does not suggest that the world, or the literary world is unaware of the genre of love poetry, or the reality of love poets. Love poetry penned by love poets, has existed from the beginning of time and will continue to remain in existence, throughout the course of history.
There are more love poets and there is far more love poetry, on the horizon of time, than any human being ever realizes.
As we watch history unfold, we see evidence of the rejection and suppression of love poetry. There is ongoing oppression of love poets, even while the world waltzes in and out of one crisis situation after another.
As human beings, we need to see more emphasis placed on the topic of love. No one can deny that reality. Love poets, through the writing of love poetry, are in the unique position of being able to do exactly that.
Love poetry can bring about changes in the world!
It does not matter if love poetry focuses on the individual, couple, family, group or community. If it is written on the level of country, world or universe, that is even better.
“Love has a complexity, multiplicity and diversity of expression.”
One expression of love, is found in love poetry, written by love poets. There are many other possible expressions of love and many other modes of expression.
Love poetry contains an element of passion, that meets a need in the lives of human beings.
“To love and be loved…”
Love poetry is a teaching tool, one that has been ignored as such, for far too long. The world tends to focus on everything but love, most of the time.
“The love of God and one another…” is an exemplary ideal, that human beings can achieve. Remember that the concept of love, is found in every single culture of the world, not just in the Christian religion.
Love poets are found in every part of the world. You can do your part to promote the cause of love poets and love poetry, everywhere. You will be glad that you did, when you see the expressions of love being magnified!
