Love is such a personal word to use! I love pizza! I love thunderstorms! I love seeing a child discover new things!

What do you love? (not who - that's for another post!)

Pizza, chocolate, reading my favorite poems time and time again, receiving a funny forward in my email that I haven't already seen thirty times, roses, the scent of lilacs, many other flowers, having a long and meaningful conversation with someone special, being in his arms, holding his hand, when someone posts a really nice reply to one of my poems, sunrises (even though I HATE getting up early), both sunshine and overcast days, the rolling smily icon and devil name just a few!

Nan, you are right! I also love the sound of pines dancing in the night wind in the forest. A crackling fire in the fireplace...

I love the sound of my coffee pot in the morning and that first cup of the day. I love the rain in summer, the feel of sand betwixt my toes, the rose garden at the park, the smell of new mown grass, the yawn of a newborn baby, my son's voice when he tells me he loves me (even in front of his friends),the stars on a clear night, my little sound that announces when I have mail, and my husband's scent on my pillows.

Hmm let's see...I LOVE the first sunny weekend of spring. I love dry crisp blue fall days, that were so chilly the night before that you had to have the season's first fire. I love my sons! I love their blue eyes, the way they look straight into mine as they tell me how much they love me. I love being read to. I love having my hair played with. I love honesty. I love my first latte of the day. I love someone who looks straight into my eyes while I am talking...tho I am shy enough that looking straight into theirs is hard for's a quality I hold high in others! I love old things.....discovered an old family Bible, or a box of musty letters, or even an old kitchen utensil....the history behind things like that that fascinate me. I love poetry and art and music and nature. They all make my soul feel so alive! I love to grow things. I love other people's little girls...I want a daughter so bad! I love men who clean up after themselves. I love backrubs when I have a migraine. I love finding a great deal on something I have wanted for ages! I love long soaks in the tub with herbal bath tea bags and a candle and a great book. I love reading classics....and I think I shall leave it at this for now! LOL

I love cranking the music up load and moving to the beat, just rocking out.  I love playing my guitar, watching the stars, feeling the caress of sunrays on my face, the sound and sight of streams flowing through the verdant forests surrounding the St. Croix River... and many other things too...

I love the smell of fresh cut grass in the summer and that fresh smell right after it rains. Both those smells send shivers down my spine.

This is my first visit here...the question intrigued me, and made me think.

I love that special touch from a special person, the look in the eyes of someone who cares, the look in someone's eyes after you know you've helped them, the sight of my house after a long day at work, warm spring and hot summer days, flower gardens, gardening with no gloves (I love the feel of the earth in my hands), seeing the beauty produced from your hard work, peach colored roses, gerbera daisies, wisteria draped over an arbor, books, my computer, and Nan really had one that I love with a passion...the sound of waves slapping the beach, and walking barefoot at the water's edge.

I love the sound of a living ocean cutting all the worry from my mind...I love laying on my back, hair all around staring up beyond a mirage of leaves into a blue sky...I love the song of crickets in a summer evening...I love the caress of hands through my hair and the light tickle when fingers accidently touch my back...I love the butterfly's flight, its dance with the air...I love poetry and the life it gives me...I love drowning into a favourite song, playing it over and over...I love feeling the heartbeat of a cat beating next to my cheek and the fresh smell of its fur after it has been outside in a cold night...I love the last lines of a beloved novel and that feeling of missing the characters while knowing I can visit them again...I love the taste of toothpaste...I love smiles from strangers and the sense of community for a brief second before they pass right out of my life...I love the small things within a huge existence...

I Love...
*when my pen flows across paper seemingly without a thought and something wonderful comes out of it
*Getting so into a book that I lose myself in it and hours pass as I read unaware
*Talking with someone and feeling that I've really connected and been understood
*Meeting the challenge- someone telling me somethig can't be done and my proving them wrong
*The innocence of children, th ecute little things they say and do
*The beach, deserted on a moonlight night with a gentle breeze
*Thunderstorms their intensity holds ma captive
*Gazing at the stars (of course) and the feelings of wonder they invoke

 Mystical being
which makes ink flow
Surround me in
your incandescent glow
Fill my brain with
thoughts and rhyme
As I try to capture
but a moment in time

I love the sound of someone you've loved but kept it to yourself saying those 3 words to you. It's exciting, scary, and relieving all at once. Everything seems so perfect in those breif but beautiful moments. I also love warm sand squishing between your toes at the beach (OH! How I long for california so!)

Hm, lets see here..I love the smell of chlorine in our pool, the smell of fresh cut grass, standing out in the rain, looking into my boyfriend's stunning eyes, loosing myself in my writing, hearing a baby's laughter, lighting candles and listening to music by myself, being told that I'm loved, being surprised, and a heck of a lot more too...

I love to make my friends laugh

I love the sound of rain in the middle of the night

I love homemade soup on a cold day

I love homemade lemonade on a hot day

I love sliced tomatoes in the summer

I love a nice long hot bubble bath with a glass of wine.

I love watching puppies and kittens playing.

I love spending time by myself to do whatever.

Poet DeVine are you very depressed and in need of two hugs?  If so I have two for you.

These are a few of the things I love-
*The giggle that bubbles up from the innocence of little girls at play.
*Little boys with beads of perspiration
on their noses .. affirmation of how
hard they've been at play.
*A walk on the beach in a warm
drizzle of rain.
*The touch on my face by my blind friend
when he searches for my smile.  
The smile that radiates from his face
when he finds it.
*The calm serenity that comes over me
when I hear the tolling of church bells.
*An e-mail from a friend ... just because
he 'happened' to be thinking of me.
*The waltz of the moon across the sky,
tiptoeing around the stars.
*A jet plane roaring through the clouds.
*Flying kites and feeling the stress and
tension being pulled from me.
*Art festivals. *Yard sales.
*Giving hugs that surprise the receiver.
*The glowing embers of a campfire.
*The fragrance of freshly washed laundry.
*Grown sons who ask for recipes.
*Grown daughter who asks for poetry.
*Friends who are always there.
*Two-hour naps.
*Hot-air balloon rides.
*Cotton candy.
*Coffee - steaming hot.
*One-pot suppers.
*The wag of a dogs tail.
*Nekkid sunbathing.
*A good football game.

**Questions like this that make me
smile as I recall.

Thank you, PoetD.

I love to be in love with one person

Because it makes life perfect in all it's imperfection

But when the love is gone life becomes too heavy

I love moving my body in a trance with the music
I love to watch my neighbor's cows and horse they are so peaceful
I love Passion's people good spirit
I love to make people happy
And too many time I love to be dead
