The Glue of the Universe
Love is the glue that holds the universe together.
It’s not just a feeling; it’s more like a tether.
Gravity is actually love in action,
a binding force that expresses as attraction.
In our quiet moments, we sometimes feel
a spirit of oneness: that’s love’s appeal.
Do not be deluded. Love’s not just devotion,
not just a trinket or flighty emotion.
It’s a harmonizing principle that will draw to you
wealth, health, or a serious case of the flu!
Whatever you choose as a source of affection
will be drawn to you under love’s direction.
It’s an unthinking power that simply obeys
and responds to requests all ways, always.
So, be aware of your thoughts—what draws your disdain,
lest love’s magnetic power draw to you only pain.

I will read forever because it lets me visit in my mind the worlds that I will never be able to see; it helps me put away the stresses of the day and relax into the rhythm of the story before me; it lets me bring to the surface and experience without regrets those feelings I hide away; it lets me re-experience the thrill of first love through someone else's eyes; it keeps my mind juiced so that it will never desert me; it is always there for me even when there's no one else. I will read forever no matter whether it is print or digital because the words will always call to me. ~ A Sassy Scribbler
