POETRY ZONE March 19-25

Inspiration for Love Is came from a list of lines to include one or more in our poem. I started with "Love lies buried."  Can you guess at some of the others  included?

LOVE IS. . .

Love lies buried ‘neath the deepest sea

Furrows spuming tendrils to the light

Rhythms swell and spread, a crescendo

Tide wipes sand of doubt away for now


Love alone is tender, good for warmth

Evening is a shroud that love unveils

Laser beam lights one step, and N more

Blessed, not burnt, at sun’s inner core.  


Over time and distance love endures

Weathering both boulders and pebbles

Rarified air while hiking Zion’s Mount

Where we always laugh and dream


Misery may engulf but not drown it

Passion’s zeal may scorch but not burn it

Not even Paradise will complete it for


 Form: Nonette, 9 lines, as the word suggests. I have always found the translation of Galatians 5:1 in the New American Standard Bible fascinating: "It is for freedom that Christ has set us free."



Liberty’s birthright bound, locked and chained

Freedom’s fortress breached, choice by choice

Once surrendered for sin’s debt

No barter can buy back

Freedom is not free

Death the price paid

Inside and out
