Portuguese Man Of War


It was not a jellyfish who wrapped his
tenacles around many inches
of a swimmer.
30 years later she bears
many scars
from a siphonophore...
a Portuguese
Man of War.

    In my humble opinion, we are all love incarnate,
    pilgrims on the road of love, back to our hearts
    in which God who is Infinite Love dwells. (Report) Reply
