As Merriam-Webster defines it:
a : love conceived by Plato as a fundamental creative impulse having a sensual element
b : erotic love or desire
Dictionary definitions are all well and good, but there are some things better expressed than defined. BlogNostics is celebrating its rite of spring with a call for submissions for poetry, prose, original art and spoken word pieces that affirm life and loving as a pean to the sensual side, love and eroticism. Unleash your creative libido and Show. Us. You.
