The challenge I was given was to write a poem about love and title it “Love in Ten Sentences.” Now, it must have 10 lines, each 4 words long, and every line must contain the word “love.” At the end of the poem, I’m to include a favorite quote about love.
Thank you, Staci, I will accept your love challenge. Visit Staci’s wonderful blog here.
(Y’all have no way of knowing how many times I had to write this poem in order to feel satisfied with it. I’m not sure I achieved complete satisfaction, but my efforts for your reading pleasure are below.)
His love appeared quietly,
True love: effortless devotion,
Whispering love over me.
While I dismissed love,
Love, he has guarded.
Our love, a possibility,
As love questions timing,
We never escape love.
My love inside poetry,
His love, silent kisses.
For you see, each day I love you more
Today more than yesterday and less than tomorrow.
