    Lovely depiction of sudden romantic moment of pure bliss, occasioned by nature mutual affinity - love at first sight, well articulated, nicely encapsulated, and insightfully penned with conviction. Love is whimsical and temperamental, appearing unannounced and may leave without warning, if not carefully nurtured to maintain its bliss. Thanks for sharing Brian. Please read my poem MANDELA - THE IMMORTAL ICON. (Report) Reply
