UBC 19 - AtoZ - Quintessential Love

Day 19  of the Ultimate Blogging Challenge and the letter Q  for the  AtoZ Blogging Challenge.

Q is for  .... Quintessential Love

Quintessential means "Representing the most perfect or typical example of a quality or class"

I have to say the letter Q stumped me as well and then quintessential kept appearing in my mind.

Quintessential? Quintessential what? and then the brain flashed the word Love so Quintessential Love it is and with that I will go ...

Love is such a beautiful and profound emotion when one connects with the spiritual aspect of it.

There are so many famous couples in history Anthony and Cleopatra, Lancelot and Guinevere, Paris and Helen of Troy and one of my favourites Romeo and Juliet among many others.

In India too we have some very Divine couples depicting the most perfect love:  Rama and Sita,  Krishna and Radha,  Shiva and Sati-Parvati. These are "shashwat jodis" - perpetual, permanent couples - soulmates never parted in life and in Spirit - always merged for only together are they whole.

But I wanted to define quintessential love for me, that is what I understand it to be from my perspective so penned it down in a poem, for poems are the language of love,


I have lived through the aeons of time with you

We have traversed universes in a multitude of lifetimes

I have loved each beat of your heart, every thought in your mind

I have smiled at every rhythm your soul has orchestrated

And immersed myself in the ecstasy of your every moment

I have seen you in every aspect of my existence

And felt you in the minutest fibre of my being

I have merged my consciousness with yours

And thus bridged the chasm of this vast, endless cosmos

Wherever we are, we reach through thin veils

And blend together into one presence 

Now, and then forever.


Grateful for that soul that brings my definition of quintessential love to life, wherever you are.

And to all my Indian friends, Happy Ram Navami - God's love for us is truly quintessential and ineffable.

Have a love-filled day. Namaste. Blessings to all.

  12. I love the concept of love, lived through many lifetimes. I've used the theme in all my books. In the first, Still Rock Water, Liliha meets her love after a disasterous marriage. Then comes a post-opocalyptic series, three of which have been published, where they meet again.

    1. Thanks Vrndavana. Ever since I was very little I always said "My Ram" and he has been my heart ever since. Ram Navami was also my dear late father's birthday as per the Indian calendar. It is a very special day for me.

  20. Beautiful poem, Suzy! I'm not sure if Anthony and Cleopatra qualify though; wasn't it more to take over her throne for Caesar?
