'Love - like a flower'

and appear
out of the blue,
mystery to some
but others embrace it
happiness not guaranteed
instead of enjoying the voyage,
we focus more on the conclusion
before it has a chance to bloom, it dies…

    In our changeable world Love often has very a short life.

    Sadly love can die before it's had a chance to bloom. Even if it's evergreen it can even fade. Enjoyable poetry Wilma....:)

    This is such a wise perspective on love, Wilma, and your use of a "flower" as a simile is quite creative. There are no guarantees that new love wil last, so I'll heed your advice and try to enjoy the voyage more. There is someone I'm interested in now, Wilma. But I have to take care of business in Tallahassee this week before I can really get to know him. Your poetry and your friendship are like bright rays shining on my life. Love you, Carolyn
