Love is a river
ever changing as it flows...
and occassionally disembarks
from the path it once chose.

It bubbles and churns-
runs shallow and deep...
and some dry up
in the raging stillness of heat.

The currents move differently
through channels and pools,
and in the right dosage
refreshes and cools.

Love, unlike water
can't be bottled or sold.
It comes from the heart
and is NEVER cold.

This was written 2/9/2000 during my abnormal psych class...coincidence? *grins* anyway. I wrote this for my beau for Valentine's day, and because i was kinda thirsty.

Oh so beautiful!

 Did Jesus laugh?
I think He did,
'cause He was once
a little kid;
and all of us
were made with joy
both sugar-spice girl
and snake-snail boy!

This just shows you how our brain deals with messages. Hence Thinking about the one you love, Valentine and water. You did combine those very well  
I bet he needs a drink too there after.


 The ability to describe life with words is similar to painting a picture; both can be powerful tools.
