at times to all
rain cleanses the air
and other times
without you
I’m just indifferent

thinking of
the ones who offer love
in this bleak city
the still canal waters
somehow joins the stream

Love Ten Lines Long

when love matters most
stupidity signifies your love
that love nevertheless brings
solace however little love
you said love’s intent
was to love Spring
your love does remember
sitting quietly over love
love filled your womb
despite his love cheated

I have decided to stick with love. Hate is too great a burden to bear.
-Martin Luther King, Jr.

I’m honored and glad to be invited to participate in the spread the love challenge by MWConceptsUnlimited. It was great fun to write this piece, thanks MW!

To pass it along, I invite:

Mocking Bird Down
Merissa Bergen
John Flanagan
Americana Injustica
Gaelic Dreams

Of course participation is entirely at will. But if interested, the guidelines are to write it in no more than ten lines, four words per line with the word love included in each line. Also, a favorite love quote should be attached at the end of the poem.

Have fun all!
