Yes, what CArolyn said here,this is quite contrastive which makes it a very interesting combo. I loved your symbolism of the butterfly and the going from rain to dry!

There is a remarkable contrast in these two poems, Harry. From what I've seen, however, love often seems like a battlefield. In fact, your poem inspired me to play Pat Benatar's song "Love Is a Battlefield" in the middle of writing this comment. Excellent entry for the contest and I wish you success! Love, Carolyn

Love can lead to such sadness. I feel it in this fine pair of yearnings. Love, Dave
