Expressing Love


What does the word ‘love’ mean to us?
How do we express it each day?
Connotations are not just romantic,
we reflect love in our unique way.

Parental love is powerful –
supportive, protective, ongoing.
We love through wins and losses
as we watch our offspring growing.

Grandparent love is special,
we didn’t know we could love that much.
It’s a mutual, endearing bond
which starts with our first touch.

We love our friends and associates
who are there for us each day –
people we can rely on
when things are not going our way.

We may love our job or career.
It’s what we do but not who we are.
It vibrates through our talents and skills
and becomes part of our memoir.

Love of nature is important
appreciating all that’s around –
wondrous plants, trees, birds and animals
which all over earth abound.

Express love every way you can
to everyone you know or meet.
Love is the most powerful tool we have
and it makes our lives complete.

Happy Valentine’s and every day

My book of inspirational poems Morning Light is available here


Day 23 of  NaPoWriMo “Today, let’s try writing triolets. A triolet is an eight-line poem. All the lines are in iambic tetramenter (for a total of eight syllables per line), and the first, fourth, and seventh lines are identical, as are the second and final lines. This means that the poem begins and ends with the same couplet. Beyond this, there is a tight rhyme scheme (helped along by the repetition of lines) — ABaAabAB.”  I created two.




Today was my Father’s birthday

I think he’d like my poetry,

he was always so supportive.

Today was my Father’s birthday

and one gift to him I could give

would be my book called Morning Light.

If I could write a best seller

I doubt it would be poetry,

perhaps I should try a romance.

If I could write a best seller

I’d need to plan well in advance.

I know writing isn’t easy.

If I could write a best seller

I doubt it would be poetry.
