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.

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

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

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

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

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

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