To have and not to hold – a poem. Photo: Camú River, Dominican Republic. biteslife.com

I have found it and it flows like a river

with waters that run deep and calm.

I have found it and this river is clean.

It harbors abundant life.

I have found it and even from afar

its memory brings me a smile.

Its heart is a safe haven for my heart.

There is no need to own.

How can you own immensity and beauty?

It is to be shared, my bliss.

I have found it and it is omnipresent,

my life better for experiencing it.

I have found it and now I know

that there is nothing like it.

No passion comes close. No obsession holds a candle.

Only freedom and open arms to experience and rejoice.

Like a dove in my hands, love is mine

to have and not to hold.
