Summer Blog Challenge, Day 32- Poetry to my Heart

"It was the pure language of the World.  It required no explanation, just as the universe need none as it travels through endless time.  What the boy felt at that moment was that he was in the presence of the only women in his life, and that, with no need for words, she recognized the same thing. He was more certain of it than anything in the world… …And when two such people encounter each other, and their eyes meet, the past and the future become unimportant.  There is only that moment, and the incredible certainty that everything under the sun has been written by one hand only.  It is the hand that evokes love, and creates a twin soul for every person in the world.  Without such love, one’s dreams would have on meaning. "

This may not be poetry by the traditional definition, but this passage from Paulo Coelho's The Alchemist is poetry to my heart.  So much so that we asked one of my husband's brothers to read it at our wedding ceremony...
