~Tangling Flame~

"Dont wait for love to happen,

lit love within yourself"

Originally uploaded by
I drove ……..
To the edge of my soul
Hushing all chaos within
So I can stand
On a thin lane of who I am
While I was there
I lighted a flame
A flicker of love
So love can begin
All within my heart
Tangling like a plant
Moreover intertwining
Now all over me
From head to toes
That’s when I begun to live love
Naturally it reflected

I started my morning today with hussles of life, and tangled with business world ... and seeked for light to take me out of this messy life.. so I had to come back over here to find an inspiration of some kind.. calm calm down my confused soul ... you have no where to go except back to your soul ...

I thank you all for your words ... Nasra

Love from within should always be answered with equal intensity. Love is the ultimate grace.

And you have a lot of grace, my friend!
