The Smallest Ember

We talk about it, dream about it, fantasize, write poems, novels, movies, create works of art, architecture, landscapes, entire worlds, about epic, grand, quiet, silly, clumsy, graceful, lasting, souls mating, serendipitous, once in a lifetime, forever, undying love.  And it’s huge, beyond our wildest dreams, grandiose, emphatic.  But what about the touch of his hand, the light on her hair, the sweet smile, a tenderness, a simple love note?  The smallest ember, becoming fire?  Now.  In this moment?  With all your heart.  Everything, everyone, every chance you get?  With each beat of your heart.  Why not love?
