"THE QUEEN OF HEARTS"

OMNI AMOR VINCI NOS ET CEDAMUS AMORI ~ LOVE CONQUERS ALL; LET US SURRENDER

~ (acrylic on canvas/120x80/2010)

 

"When Love beckons you, follow him...

Though, his ways are hard and steep,

and when his Wings enfold you, yield to him.

Though, the Sword hidden among His Pinions may wound you.

For even as Love Crowns you,

so, may he Crucify you..

Love has no other Desire but to Fulfill itself.

But, if you love and must needs have desires, let these be your desires..... 

to melt and be like a running brook that sings it's melody to the night..

To know the pain of too much tenderness.

To be wounded by your own understanding of love,

and to bleed willingly and joyfully.

To wake at dawn with a winged heart and give thanks for another day of loving,

to rest at the noon hour and meditate Love's Ecstasy..

To return home at eventide with Gratitude,

and then, to sleep with a Prayer for the Beloved in your Heart and a Song of Praise upon your lips... 

 

~ Kahlil Gibran
