DP Daily Prompt: I want to know what Love Is
We each have many types of love relationships— parents ,children, spouses, friends. And they are not always with people; you may love an animal or a place. Is there a single idea or definition that runs through all the varieties of “love”?
I think love is a very powerful feeling it’s a deep affection for an animal, place,plant, or people. It’s the kind of feeling you have when you are busy doing something, suddenly you jump up because you realize you did not water your plant, or forgot to feed your cat or failed to call your friend.
In this age of technology there are so many ways of remembering your near and dear ones. If your feeling is not deep enough, you will not run to water that plant or feed your pet, or send an email or call your friend to know how he /she is.
My definition would be a deep rooted feeling for a friend, an animal , a place, a child, spouse or even a plant.
Thank you for this nice post. Loving relationships…we all have them. Who has not loved some one, some thing, at some time?
The Naqshbandi Sufi Jami asked candidates for initiation in his Sufi order this question: “Have you ever loved?”
There is the Qur’anic verse 5:54 which points in this direction: Yuhibbuhum wa yuhibbunahu (He loves them and they love Him).
All good wishes,
Thank you for the quote, yes it is true, love is the best thing for everyone,

Very difficult to describe love. You are right it is very powerful.
Thank you Sonya.
