The March prompt is: “love poems”

In the introduction to the anthology Where the Nights are Twice as Long: Love Letters of Canadian Poets, David Eso quotes Michael Brian Oliver, who says “Love poetry… is not personal; it repeats a cosmic dialogue.” Who can inhabit desire, and who is part of this cosmic dialogue? For this month’s Award of Awesomeness, send your love poems about friends, history, cosmology, ecology, lovers, and more.
