Surrender, An Offering of Love


Surrender, An Offering of Love Strands’ fluid strength; bliss, distress, routineness plait, Tears multi-colored seeded, love's wisdom grows. Esplanades calico edge Shangri-la’s gate, Memoirs in motifs bittersweet and rainbows. Thruway taken true.., not meandering fate. Garden, Eden’s stroll sought, golden lit primrose, ‘I love You’ lives in amaranthine splendor; We know love is actually... Surrender. For Contest: Love is Actually...

Good evening Paul, thank you for the delight of your visit. I don't think you've missed reading any of my poems but you are more than welcomed to visit as often as you'd like :)) I hope you saw my new reply to you on 'Quiche' which would explain why I haven't had time to post anything new lately. The situation with Julie is still the same, she's still hospitalized, hopefully she'll be well enough to come home in a few more days. Your wonderful presence here has brightened my day my friend. Warmest wishes ~Susan

You have an awesome outlook on love, Susan. 'Surrender' implies total faith in yourself and your partner. That is why people in love share both sadness and joy, and offer mutual strength to overcome obstacles. ~ Warm regards // paul

Yes, and it seems you share my sentiments Paul. I believe having the capacity to 'surrender' is important spiritually in your faith and also emotionally, mentally and physically with your life/love partner or with anything you do in life with a passion.Your lovely words of warmth, insight and wisdom never fail to amaze me and I thank you for sharing them with me. Warmest wishes my wonderful friend.. ~Susan

Your poetry is always more form of art rather than a form of literature. Excellent poem :)
