The Art of Love

This poem was written for a close friend’s wedding in which I decided to adapt from the famous book, The Art of War. This book was written by Sun Tzu who was an ancient Chinese military general, strategist and philosopher.

– AVINA writes

Love is,
An emotion too vast to articulate.
It is a realm,
Of giving and receiving.
A journey,
In which love finds you.
A choice,
So wondrous to behold.

There are 5 fundamentals
for the union of D and J.
For the making of sensibility,
and the assessing of compatibility.

His way
Her dictatorship
Longevity
Laughter
Loyalty

His way
Drives her nuts
She does not say
And he is oblivious
But they both know
And never give up

Her dictatorship
She’s a Truong,
Winter is coming,
When snow meets volcano,
Ready he must be
For the cycle of seasons.

Longevity
High school sweethearts
So cliche
Years of growing
Years of perserverance
To be continued

Laughter
He thinks he’s hilarious
She is sullen
But when winter has gone
Her polka face melts
Hysterics fill the halls

Loyalty
Both receive
Because both exhibit
In all relationships
marriage or not
This is unbreakable

Context notes: 
D and J are the first initials of the bride and groom. 
"Truong" is the surname of the bride.

A creative writer of sorts with a passion for hospitality. I believe that every subject can be written, articulated, and expressed in the form of letters. A thought, a thing, an emotion and beauty are just some subjects to name a few. When a thought is keyed, the keys begin to dance, the dance crescendoes, unveiling the beholder of the thought.
