Love does not exist in the hearts or minds of flesh,

It is elusive as a cloud of breath—expelled in fog.

It, is captured in the imagination of the soul,

Then, released into action as visible as dreams—unexplained.

    Yes love is so elusive especially to put into words, but you have succeeded here….

    Definitely elusive, but sometimes it can be caught! You are quite a romantic, ZQ.

    Love is a fragrance, a whiff, a notion.. illusion indeed, but every once it materialize… and that’s the hope we live on.

    Love is, indeed, so many things and none at all.

    So true. It is elusive, “captured in the imagination of the soul”. Beautifully romantic, my friend, and Happy Valentine’s Day to you!

    released into action as visible
    as dreams—unexplained.

    How very true! Love can’t be seen but can be felt. It gets emotions involved which is the interesting part!

    Love is sometimes very elusive, always searching always escaping. Really nice poem!
