Love On The Late

Vintage Words


Warmth in here
falls like wood
chips in the fire,
embers glowing,
fading, waiting
for a wind
to rekindle
and glow again.

No matter the age
of the coals. If
the wood is a bit
moist, we can
withstand that much
smoke in our lives.

The fire is the point.

No longer caring
about our ages
or the years behind
us, we stretch out
our hands to touch
the flame again.

Courageous as
hot love, subtle
with the willingness
to be singed, like

cave dwellers

we stand around

the warmth and believe

the magic.

Love it

I love this poem Lady A. If you think about it if it wasn't for old love there would be no new love.

Well Said b4i8islept. aka Roger.

Old love is close to my arterial schlerotic valentine that acheth and it loves just about everything right about now. It's nice to be filled with tender and passionate feelings at 62, I'll be absolutely dangerous at 65. - Be well.

So Much Sentiment

I wanted to write love as a reality, the ups/downs sides...the risk, the joy. Be well, my friend, Lady A
