Love is not blind

Those who profess by

Love at first sight,

Are also the ones

Brainwashed by the notion

Love is blind.

Like a fine wine

Mellowed by age,

A taste enhanced,

And value soared,

Love that has withstood

The test of time,

Seen the ebb and flow

Of life,

Good times and the bad,

That’s the love

That thrives.

The wrinkles of time,

Unkind to the beautySkin deep,

Dims the sights,

Enhancing the glow

That burns steadily

Deep down in the heart,


Love is not blind,

Love is not blind.

Poetry is my passion. I am not a methodical writer. I have no set topics to write about. What I feel, perceive, think about, I will like to share in this blog. I open my mind to the world. Like the weather, sometimes my poems are cloudy, sometimes stormy. I always like to see sunshine streaming through the leaves of trees, so I hope I can share some of those sunshine with my readers.

      1. I think there’s a dose of luck involved too. I imagine most couples think they’ve found the right partner only for it to go pear shaped after a few months. Luck and a hard work too. It’s hard for some people to be completely selfless and that’s how you (both) have to be. Some never give enough.

  1. Now you have it! Content and style and attitude and wisdom and counsel. Did I cover everything? You and Jane had lots of “smarts” in your conversation. I think hardly anyone really loves when they marry. Love comes with shared pleasures and agonies. One is wise to choose someone to marry who is committed long term.
