Is It The Love - Poem by Joan Xie

Is it the love that sweetened the air
That the sense lengthened the timeshare

Is it your presence lightened my steps
Though no gate has been
Opened and glass still practices its evil stare

Though you may say we are new friends
But old soul knows infallible truth
What the love may despair it may also inspire
And it judges our true characters
And always deviates us from inertia

Rhododendron blushes unpredictable May
Leaves by the east-window are lighter
Than those drooping vine at the west
I pace leisurely on the city street
Think of youth

Is it the grey a new green
Is it the light escape from your secret gaze
That quickened my pulse

Is it love
Or is it The Love

Topic(s) of this poem: love and life

    the spent time
    in the mirthful way
    with the love sizzling heart
    for long, long, long moments.....

    but after slight brittle in
    it keeps aside gradually
    each to others

    o is it love............../// superb expressive; love it
