Love is not a question

of how much

or how long

but how.

These four short lines have my mind racing and asking myself a dozen questions about love. This piece is really powerful, well done.

Sweet little poem and I love your photo of an iris. Did you grow it? It's beautiful. I have a few, but not that one.

So glad you liked this poem. Most of mine are "little"! Yes, all the flower pictures I use are of my own garden. It is a passion of mine second only to writing. Iris are my favorite. Sorry you only have a few. I think I have almost every color in one form or another. You might look for my hub "Flowers, flowers, and more flowers." Guess what it's about?

I used so few words, I figured they better pack a punch! Thanks for the comment.

It's interesting reading these few words, that I know how, too, words could be so few and a Hub. Answers a question asked of myself and the wondering. So good to see, it's possible, but perhaps more so with a following.

ArtDiva: Thanks for the comment. I actually posted most of my poetry in my early days as a hubber. HP allows for poetry. In the beginning I had a lot more poetry on HP, but later I moved it to Bubblews thinking I'd get more traffic. When I moved it back to HP, I didn't include all of it. I have a volume on Amazon, "These Lines" if you are interested. Thanks.

You know , there is just the perfect simplicity of often one line or two , a simple answer to a complicated question , a perfect response to an important inquiry , or more often than not a gifted reply to such perfection .

Why is this simple poem so awesome !.......:-]

ahorseback: Aw Shucks! Seriously, I'm moved by your comment. With me, as far as poetry goes, less is more. Thank you.
