Love is the Key to You

Updated on October 13, 2015
Love is always the answer. Even when we don't know the question. Poetry, by Audrey Howitt
Love is always the answer. Even when we don't know the question. Poetry, by Audrey Howitt | Source




We weave love out of unexpected moments,

joy and sorrow adding piquancy to its taste

,the flavor of our lives.


Fate curls itself in tentative tendrils

in quest of that most fertile ground,

a garden cultivated within the deepest part of us.


There, each soul exhales its colors,

vibrant, until the hues blind our eyes,

open our hearts, pulling tight

the threads with which we count our days--

tying us one to the other.


And over time, we find the truth

--that love is the key which opens the door to you.

      Audrey,

      I haven't been online much, but here I am now :)

      This is a beautiful poem. I shared it on Facebook.

      I notice you live in San Fran? I was there briefly with my boyfriend the first day of our vacation a couple of weeks ago. It's a beautiful area! We saw the Golden Gate bridge and Lombard St, and saw Alcatraz in the distance.

      I hope you have a wonderful weekend.

      ~ Kathryn

      Audrey,

      Yes! "Love is the key." And I am counting on it for as of late my heart has been stolen. "And we are count[ing] the days..."

      Your poem resonates on so many levels.
