    Poem Commentary

    The world is touched by it. It can be overlooked or simply ignored. Sometimes it's not understood or is misinterpreted. Like the rain it seems to come and go but like the sun we bask in it's warmth from day to day.

    Love Is


    Love had it's birth
    with the Ancient One;
    'Began with Omega
    Proceeding the Sun
    Love's not a volume
    Or archival jug
    It's more like a blanket
    Or tapestry rug
    Perhaps like a river
    Or ...(umm) a shoe or a sock
    It tends to go with you
    where ever you walk

    Love is the answer
    To market one's wares
    Mediator for wisdom
    In foreign afairs
    Love is a family
    Which passes it on
    When for many around us
    The essence is gone

    Love is the path
    In the gardens of hope
    It follows the seasons
    Supplanting - "to cope"
    Love is the nurture
    Which grew in the womb
    Love charts the journey
    From craddle to tomb
    Love is tomorrow
    In living today
    Love is forever
    What more can I say?

    I agree with Madelynn - this has living substance, and I for one feel like putting it on. For love is a suit that we wear, it can get muddied a bit from time to time, but with the right one by your side it can be the perfect fit. Your words Fit just Right! 10

    Thank you Maddy. Tell you what ... I hesitated to leave it in once I wrote it. There's that fear of critical feedback factor. Some people (I imagined would see it as too loose or flipant.

    Thanks ginga.

    In science one tries to tell people, in such a way as to be understood by everyone, something that no one ever knew before. But in poetry, it's the exact opposite.
