Originally a Sufi concept,
re-emerging in a Hindi movie,
Seven Stages of Love. What to expect.
They’re almost in the realm of poetry.
Attraction, first, then Infatuation,
followed by Love, Romantic Love, Romance.
Reverence next in this compilation.
Trust and Respect this, in this merry dance.
Fifth is Worship. I think, Adoration.
But then, it is claimed, there is Obsession.
Perhaps called Madness, at this sixth station.
In film, seventh, after indiscretion,
called Foolishness, but when got serious
said to be Death. That is ambiguous.
