Love is precious, but it's also difficult, and it has it moments of insanity.
This is  simply an exotic bird




~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~






We've all been there:

the bitterness,
the disolution,
the lack of faith,
the heartache,
the tears,
and the anger.

Relationships end,

enough said

-- except that the heart still bleeds

and the wounds lie open,

needing the comfort of a poem.






With these pieces

I applied the tourniquet,

the bandage,

the covering.



May their pain and their truths help you,

or convince you of your luckiness,

if good fortune has smiled on you

and left you still in love.



****



The donkey and the frog are talking about the marvels of the world.





Anyway, the following pieces

are from my dark moments.

Some are fictitious.

Some are truth.

The two have long ago entwined,

leaving scratches on my heart.



~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~


Sometimes




I see love about me

A couple shares glances

An elderly pair holds hands

Someone pats a hand

Touches a knee

Caresses a back

A secret smile passes

from lips to lips

The way he looks at her

The way she looks at him

Love is, and I still believe . . .

Sometimes.




~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~




This a picture of a puppy begging for attention.
