a tale of tails, tenacity, and tedium, as told by me, usually barefoot and bellowing

Love, Toads and Whirligig

BrainyQuote inspiration:
To live is like to love - all reason is against it, and all healthy instinct for it.  Samuel Butler

In this valley of springs 
Touching
You kiss the salt
From my brow
Things will be okay
The aches and pains
Sap our strength
But doesn't shake our trust
In the length of the land
In the breadth of our love
We heal the stain
On the lands
Calling no fault
But that of time

Time is indeed the real enemy. We all need that little bit more.

In the length of the land
In the breadth of our love

That is a great pairing of ideas.

Yes--agree with Kerry's comment--those are beautiful lines, and the whole poem bespeaks a kind of strength in struggle, thanks. k.

Age presses upon all of us and yet sometimes we can make our foundations unbreakable...

We heal the stain
On the lands
Calling no fault
But that of time

When two people are determined.. nothing can stop them from succeeding not even time! :D Beautifully executed :D

Lots of love,
Sanaa

I love hte love eternal in this. The acceptance of all things that comes with that enduring love across time. The largest blemish is accepted as yet another texture to be appreciated.

Bravo, you're really good at this, and I may be late to the party, but I always play catch up and am happy I did! Blogging takes the ho-hum out of especially rainy days.
