Since the beginning of the written language literary artists have attempted to describe this elusive emotion.  From Plato and Shakespeare to Elizabeth Barrett Browning and Robert Bly the attempts have been impressive but often lacking.  Is love based in the total freedom expressed by Helen Gurley Brown or by the total commitment expressed by Anne Desclos?  If you can answer that the world will lie at your feet.  Give it a try. Compose your best sentence to attempt a universal description of love.  Feel free to post it in comments. At the very least Hallmark may come knocking at your door.  To start the process, here’s my sentence:

When tended, the petals of love’s blossom each have a unique fragrance.

Happy Valentine’s Day
