Written for:  Carpe Diem #1318 – “Love Is A Mystery” – A quote taken from “The Spy” by Paulo Coelho.
“Love … the one true emotion we need in our life can also be used in spying as Mata Hari did to retrieve intelligence from the Germans and other enemies. I think love is still used that way by spies, but of course that’s not the love we need in our life.”

[…] “Love is an act of faith and its face should always be covered in mystery. Every moment should be lived with feeling and emotion because if we try to decipher it and understand it, the magic disappears.” […] (Source: Paulo Coelho – The Spy)

About purplepeninportland

I am a freelance poet, born and bred in Brooklyn, New York. I live with my husband, John, and two charming rescue dogs–Marion Miller and Murphy. We spent eight lovely years in Portland, OR, but are now back in New York. My goal is to create and share poetry with others who write, or simply enjoy reading poetry. I hope to touch a nerve in you, and feel your sparks as well.
