        A Lifetime Long

The first Spring blossoms
and the final falling leaves
are like bookends for the
flowing years.
As each day dissolves in Time,
if you insist that the Spring breeze
and Autumn wind hold no
   compassion,
then why do they bring me
so much magnificent beauty
on the ephemeral breath of
    heaven,
from beyond this world
of such yearning
where some such as I
wait a lifetime long for
   love to appear ?

Love is overrated, Bruce.

Spring and autumn being bookends to the flowing years...like this image. But what happened to winter? This the flowing years? It being winter now, brr brr, can't say these are flowing days.

That aside, methinks one should not put much faith in that that task of looking and finding love. You're right, it can take a lifetime for it to happen. or not. So let it be, que sera sera

Love, true love comes but once and never leaves us. How can we know this? Because it exists within us and when we stop denying it's presence, we'll discover it and so will others. Like a two-way radio, it broadcasts and receives...in any season.

Good, heartfelt poetry Mr. Adams.

Pass the Glade if you're going to do that here...
