    I just noticed the little rhythm dancing in your poem, like a reflection dances at the very tip of a wave. Very clever, my dear. I think you are quite filled up with poetry..(smile) (Report) Reply

    This keeps me wondering...keeps me thinking...keeps me remembering. Perhaps I should just write it out on a card and pin it above my desk. Thanks for sharing, Sonya. N (Report) Reply

    This is wonderful indeed..
    Nothing else matters, but love..
    Sometimes, people feel love alone is not enough..

    Yet I do agree it is the love that drives us forward, that keep us bound together...
    This is very nice.. good one to start the day..

    with lots of love
