A Beautiful Bonding.

As the rose is joined for life to its stem,
Is fed from its root, blazing colour to
All who would look, the bond that is sending
Such beauty into my life is with you.

As we two blossom with colourful love
And together feed from the same hearfelt
Need to reach out and give, desire to prove
Our devotion soars, and tenderly melts
Any small doubts, satisfies us, knowing
That beautiful bonding needs care, feeding
With time and sweet words. Reflecting the glow
Of destiny's banquet, we eat, no need
To resist such fine feast. As the flowers,
Such are we, - bonded, and so powerfully.

    'That beautiful bonding needs care, feeding
    With time and sweet words. Reflecting the glow
    Of destiny's banquet'..., true from the heart, truly said words. (Report) Reply

    A wonderful simile. Roses speak the language of love more eloquently
    than any other flower. Amd you, my friend, are a poet worthy of the name.

    As always,

    Fay, Poetry sprouts in you.
    As the flowers mature into fruit,
    Ripening bonds sweet smell & juice.

    Another masterly piece about the warmth and passion of a loving relationship. Really appreciated the metaphors - all capped off with destiny's feast! No need to ask what is for dessert! !

by Ambrose Bierce

Once I dipt into the future far as human eye could see,
And I saw the Chief Forecaster, dead as any one can be--
Dead and damned and shut in Hades as a liar from his birth,
