    Love's Rushing in...​


    Travelling at 186,000 miles per second
    is the light in the night from Lightning
    which blasts the molecules of air apart
    to create a vacuum most frightening.
    But it's not heated air being pushed apart
    that makes that clamorous din.
    After Lightning has struck
    and the vacuum collapses,
    Thunder is the air rushing in.

    And the X-chromosome lies waiting alive
    in the female egg with grace
    for the first sperm penetrating its membrane
    bringing spark for a Life to embrace.
    If an X sperm is first, it will be a girl.
    If a Y, it's a boy to win.
    And it's not your choice or mine but God's
    that gender is the sperm rushing in.

    When one Heart is enraptured by another
    and they both hold their breaths in the night
    and the vacuum between them draws closer
    for one heartbeat at the speed of Light,
    all Thunder heard then at the speed of sound
    on a whisper of air so thin
    at 11 hundred and 29 feet per second
    is the blast of Love rushing in.

    Rich – It can slip right by ya and before you know it, it’s in. But if you’ve been hit by it, felt it and been rocked by it, then I don’t have to tell you and I only need to say “Welcome aboard”. Thanks Rich. Namyh

    Coco – That “rushing in” has gotten us a world population, man made civilization and masterpieces of Mother Nature like you and like me. We create life and we are the created of life. Wow! What a job! But, somebody’s gotta do it. Namyh
    P.S. Hope it keeps a smile on ya at 1129 ft/sec.

    I really luv the title of this piece, its so
    perfect and fitting. You always draw me in
    and I just luv reading about luv.
    This is my favorite part of the poem:


    "When one Heart is enraptured by another
    and they both hold their breaths in the night
    and the vacuum between them draws closer
    for one heartbeat at the speed of Light,
    all Thunder heard then at the speed of sound
    on a whisper of air so thin
    at 11 hundred and 29 feet per second
    is the blast of Love rushing in".


    Keep'm coming Harry...

    Much Luv
