Chances Lovers Take

Love is heart given
Hoping we receive the same
Chances lovers take

When came the moment
That we held each others heart
Love, made no mistake

One life together
Retrospect and circumspect
Is what we made it

    Nice multiple haiku with nice images, Ray

  1. Date: 2/1/2011 4:33:00 PM

    I like the revision, Ray, as this is more in line with my own experiences -- and the heartbreaking poems I've read by others who've put everything into a relationship and walked away with nothing. Thanks for letting me know about the revision. Awesome work! Love, Carolyn

  1. Date: 2/1/2011 3:20:00 PM

    This is true to some extent, Ray, but both parties in a relationship have to work together to build a future. In some cases, one person does all the work and it's still futile. Very interesting write. Love, Carolyn
