In the river of love

Updated on March 19, 2014

Broken in the river is the lost gun
the mystery of another time
the tragedy disclosed in the pages of history.

Love dives in the deep dark sea
estranged from the village of fish
and outsider while the sun falls down.

Lose your shoes in the muddy sand
the water swallows the heart
love rescues the dying soul
whispers life with every breath.

Crimson lipstick slices away the old
fake smile from her lips.
Pink rouge left in a powder puff.
No doubts left in love
The magical moments of life
rise above the crashing waves
sailing sweetly in the river of love.

      "Love dives" and the result is "magical." Hattie, thank you for your poetic expressions on the power of love.
