Sandra Feldman


A Different Love


There was very little physical about their love,
It went well beyond all that,
Like two Swans whose necks intertwine,
Creating an everlasting bond,
They embraced, floating away together,
Into the Eternity of Time,
Forever

    So simply and wonderfully beautiful. A true expression and telling of a true pure love rarely ever known by most but exists, and those who know it are the luckiest people on earth. A true 10++ (Report) Reply

    You have very poetically described an unconditional love, almost divine, in a perfect poem of fascinating love. It sends the mind looking and wishing for this type of love, but it is very rare in life to find it. Thank you. RoseAnn (Report) Reply

    The physical side to a loving relationship is a bonus. Love has so much more to offer. (Report) Reply

    Yesterday, Sept.15,2014 I was Queen for a Day. But not of a Country nor a Kingdom
    I was allowed to enter a tiny corner of the hearts of those that read this simple poem,
    What a Joy! Indescribable.

    To be able to touch others with words, make them feel, maybe a tiny instant of Love, beauty and illusion.
    What better Kingdom?
    Thank you All for reading and for your lovely, comments! Every one of them touched me deeply.

    I also want to thank PoemHunter for giving me this honor for which I am truly grateful.

    It is the same love what many preachers had preached to develop in the hearts of human.. Here, you have written about the friends, but loving an enemy may change our mind set to believe the effects of the eternal love in one's heart, mind and body, that's the reason the sages look younger to their age..so to look younger we have to develop the feeling of love for every human around the world, just like these two swans intertwined with their necks not with the corporate deals

    nice poem.. Congratulations (Report) Reply

    Simplistic, indifferent to stylistic form and traditions, yet as beautiful as two swans necks intertwined, floating together within the waters of eternity. (Report) Reply

    Beautiful words Sandra. You are like a photographer. You always capture the moment. (Report) Reply

    The first line of your poem grabbed my attention. The physical story of love eventually, or immediately, leaves us so lonely and wanting. So, I had to continue to read your poem to find out what was the nature of their love. Nicely scribed, with regal imagery. I agree with an earlier comment, that this poem is written as if it could be read in one breath - to mirror the penultimate moment of true love. (Report) Reply

    This is a true expression of love, a higher love than we normally conceive, the sort once referred as a Platonic Love.
    Shakespeare wrote a brilliant but knotty lyric poem THE PHOENIX AND THE TURTLE(DOVE) which expresses these same sentiments. Your poem would certainly help people confused by his lush language, Back to Sandra's poem: I like the way you made this one sentence by using commas to extend it. It all takes place in a single breath, a held breath in this suspended moment in which we acknowledge the truth and wonder of an uncommon love. (Report) Reply

    :) love sees nothing...
    only cares about the partner...
    how strongly they are bonded..

    Like two Swans whose necks intertwine,
    Creating an everlasting bond...
    lovely! ! ! ! (Report) Reply
