Love is liquid......free verse

like a perfect spring rain
love is but a liquid
just as rivers all run
to the
same sea

won't we meet again in
the flesh
and become one again
no
not again
but still ?

those who really love
perhaps never are apart
Love is a liquid just as
is this
human heart

our two bodies in the
same bath
as in all things
liquid
they become one

and sadly this very liquidity can
be an ending as well
like so much standing water
after the storm

pooled long after the evenings
thunder and yet
in the morning to folow
no where
to be seen

Truly touching of the soul and that river of life.

One time I was walking and a man was begging and had no feet. I just could not help it. I sat down next to him and took off my shoes and socks, and gave them to him. We laughed too hard. One of those belly laughs. And he told me he would give them to a man with only half of one arm. Love is the juice so it is the liquid that we need. It is the cure.

My mile walk home was the best mile I did walk.

Marriage does not always stagnate. It certainly has its ups and downs, but the love of a best friend who is also the marriage partner never dies.

Voted up and beautiful. Marriage does have its ups and downs but as long love remains constant and you can call yourselves best friends.
