Of Love

How foolish humans are when puppy love
consumes us! It can happen any time -
most often in our childhood. Plenty of
such crushes happen long before our prime!

How silly as adults can some be too.
Folks marry for wrong reasons, then get burned.
They do it all again and stay so blue.
Life’s lesson for such people is not learned.

How fortunate are those who find “the one!”
They navigate life’s ups and downs and feel
love deepening before their course is run,
then pass away while knowing love was real!

A 7 so true are these words.People do marry for the wrong reason.Break ups happens and lots of hard angry feelings come out. Some people heal and some do not not. Some are lucky to find the right one to last a life time.

Knowledge is different from talent. God gives some knowledge but without talent and some talent but with no knowledge. You are gifted with both, Andrea. Keep writing...

.... Andrea, this is so right on I don't know what to say. I've seen a lot of people get married too soon or to people where a third-party observer could predict it wasn't going to last. Indeed, the last stanza - I waited until I was 41 to get married (thank goodness), and that's the deal.

I've wondered ever since the start of the contest, why make a distinction? Stay young at heart, fall foolishly in love as if your 12 or 14 again. Enjoy it, and stop feeling foolish.... Nice thoughts in your poem, Andrea.

Puppy love is going to happen to me at 61? Don't think so. My parent were married for over 50 years!! Unusual these days. Hope you take a look at my postcard poem. It is the Jewish holiday of Passover now. Anyway - he heart is a lonely hunter Peace & Love Matthew Anish

We are always searching for a perfect love if we don't already have it.
