When I was a girl I wrote a poem called “Love Is” and this challenge prompted quite the scavenger hunt as I wanted to see what my juvenile self thought about the subject. I wasn’t sure if the sentences were meant to be separate or part of a cohesive whole (I went for something rather separate). Since the onset of our existence we’ve been trying to describe what love is, which is rather like growing an angel in a petri dish if you ask me.
Love is the ocean (fathomless and deep). -from the original poem
Love is a precipice (that does not diminish in retreat).
Love outlives the host.
Love is the arrow (and the mark).
Love exonerates the soul.
Love is not blind (betrayals of the mind never infiltrate the soul).
Love is not conquest (however deep the surrender).
Love is not merchandise (it cannot be bought, bartered or sold).
Love has many veils (but wears none).
Love transcends any attempt (at explanation).
This challenge was brought to me by

Thank you for nominating me =)
Very nicely done, Candice. You’ve said it all. 🙂
Beautiful ❤ I especially like "Love outlives the host."
Awww thanks Heather!
Love is never having to say you’re sorry. ( I read that somewhere) 🙂
I think it is more a willingness to admit when you are wrong and to not keep score =)
True. Actually I was paraphrasing a small cartoon that used to be in the papers, Love Is. Every day there would be a little saying about Love.
What a lovely idea for a daily cartoon =)
“Since the onset of our existence we’ve been trying to describe what love is, which is rather like growing an angel in a petri dish if you ask me.”
Okay – listen – you had me full stop – right here – with this line. I haven’t even read the rest – and for some reason, although I’m sure it is brilliant and fascinating etc., as per your usual quixotic and interesting self Yves, I am going to content myself with the intro bit. And yes, this is meant to be a HUGE compliment. 😀
LOL! Thank you and I think that is the best part myself because really it says it all
