Love is
morning chats
while you
are still asleep
but conversant

Plans for the day
when we return again
what’s for dinner
all of which
will be repeated
when you
are actually awake

Love is
not taking advantage
making lists for later
all the mundane shit
repeated
this morning
tomorrow morning
every day
Love is


Quite a pair for Flash 55 Plus in the Imaginary Garden.

  1. The concept of two was never more unified, Marian--and so Love is--thanks so much for bringing this to the party---it is very warming this cold winter morning.

  2. Love is a dance, indeed... a dance of words and movements... leading today... following tomorrow... love is...

    Yummy.

  3. You're so right. Love is a celebration of what would normally be mundane, were it not for your beloved one. Excellent.
