Love's Classes

Vintage Words


If the world turned on the template

of love, the young would be more

serious about the value of flowers

and the essence of aromas found

in their noses.


If a lad, newly aware of lass concepts,

says hello, now is not the time for

shyness or ridicule or running away.

How will the species survive

if the males run away?


She may not appeal to the senses

the way the girl in Science class shines,

but look deeper. Do not miss

the qualities and gifts. Do not miss

the meaning of soul-mate.


Friendship leads to other things

in time. It is not always what you

say but that you say at all. Besides,

one day in the future, you

may need his chemistry notes

for the day you were out sick.

The evil in the world seeks

The evil in the world seeks to destroy love and replace it with subjugation,  no love is wort tasting when it isn't given freely. Oh my the fruits of disaster taint the fruits of the spirit. No love preaches the 7 sins. Love this write hugs

Don't let any one shake your dream stars from your eyes, lest your soul Come away with them! -SS

Tight Fit

But humans will squeeze in some affection no matter what evil lurks as hate in the hearts and minds of other humans.
