Friends or Lovers
(A Valentine Villanelle)

Throughout our lives we're ever dreaming of
The day we'll find that perfect sweet caress.
How shall we know when friendship's really love?

A quest for raptured hearts the conduit of
Life's bask in yearning throngs of WistfullNess.
Forever seems our lifelong dreams are of

The hope we may imbue our hearts thereof
With exultation, but we shan't unless
We recognize when friendship's turned to love.

Whence all emotions fit like hand in glove
It may just be - 'Tis serendipitous.
Those things in life we're ever dreaming of

As rhapsody's sung on the wing of dove
And, one to each, our promise we profess
How do we know this friendship's really love?

Whence we have placed our faith in Hands above
Each ray of sun bestows SagaciousNess
No longer things we're only dreaming of
We'll surely know when friendship's one with love.

Outsatndingly good Nan, such a picture of what can happen, love it so muuuch

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

Such a mysterious poem, Nan!

And, the thing about frienship turning to love, a very rare thing indeed, not to be taken lightly...Yes, you captured all of that here!

Nan-
Very thoughtful views of
friendship and love.
I also like the little
Loch 'Ness' monsters hiding
among the verse.

HUH ... shame on you Nancy .. how dare you querulously query my 14 syllable sonnet and then presume to post this as a villanelle ............       

Ok we're even now .....   ... meanwhile

despite the liberties taken with the repeating lines I really liked it !! which, from the arch advocate of rule breaking himself probably isn't all that surprising ..

oh ..... and btw ,, I accidentally mailed your card to the wrong alias   ..lol

Take care

Philip

this is such a good thing to be writing about friendship that turns into love can be a much stronger love and the realization that it is heading in that direction is so sweet. always be best friends tho as well as lovers!!!
