definition of love

- 2013 mixed media on paper -
Early this morning I woke up wanting to define all the various forms of love...and then stumbled upon this poem by my beloved Hafiz:

"Love is grabbing hold of the Great Lion's mane
And wrestling and rolling deep into Existence
While the Beloved gets rough
And begins to maul you alive.

True Love, my dear,
Is putting an ironclad grip upon
The sore, swollen balls
Of a Divine Rogue Elephant

Not having the good fortune to Die!"
- HAFIZ (c.1320-1389)
