A fellow blogger, Umber, has very kindly set me to task for not writing regularly! I’ve been asked to define LOVE my way, in 10 lines and 4 words in each line.
Well, I agree with Mary Crawley when she says, “I don’t care a fig about rules.”
Here is my poem, if it can be called one :
What Is Love?
Love is your parents trust,
Love is your grandma’s food,
Love is your grandpa’s stern looks,
Love is your sibling’s pillow fights,
Love is your cousin’s concern,
Love is your friend’s hug,
Love is your lover’s touch,
Love is the stranger’s help,
Love is your pet’s excitement.
Love is endless…
My favourite quote on love would have to be “When I saw you I fell in love, and you smiled because you knew.” It doesn’t get better than this, does it?
Warning : Theoretically it’s love at first sight, practically it’s lusting.
I like it for the bond of understanding and bridge of acceptance it creates between the two.
And as for the nominations to carry forward this chain of love, I’d choose (in random fashion!) :
And all other bloggers reading this! Start the chain if you still haven’t become a part of it.
I may not be the most stunning girl around, but believe me I am going to stun you.
I may not be smiling always, but believe me you’ll smile when you see me smile.
I may not be gentle always, but believe me I am just trying to get away from the shit around.
I may not look like I care, but believe me if you matter I’ll go all the way for you.
I may not look like the epitome of strength, but believe me this heart is stronger than even I perceive.
I may not have the most beautiful eyes, but believe me these eyes see beauty all around.
I may not be the one for you, but believe me there’s no one else like me you can find.
