Love Is

Love is a rainbow mirrored in the sky Its free, its beautiful and tells no lies A gleaming reflection Upon the still of a pond The dewy mist on a freshly cut lawn Love is a sanctuary for our innermost fears A tiny capsule to hold all of our tears A symbol of beauty, rare to be found Its strength and convictions Knows no bounds Love is the touch of our first newborn So soft, so delicate, so easy to adore An unconditional consenting of souls An awareness, a spirit, unique to its own Love soothes and heals though cannot be bought An eternal commitment so widely sought Love is a truth and blossoms for few A necessity of life, a uniting of hearts A palette so stunning, so beautiful and new Love is how I feel for you.

Hi Lynn, here i am where it all started. This is a beautiful piece of poetry and it sings. It sings such a simple song and it is this simplicity vthat does give it its beauty. I really enjoyed perusing each line feeling peace within as i did read down the page. This write was a joy to behold. As Linda says, it is a little gem. I am glad i found this one this early morning. This has to be a seven Lynn. Hugs....Mike. XX
