Love's Legacy

Love's Legacy

A Poem by Christine Anne Shaw

How fleeting is the comet's flare
which trails ablaze through dark night sky?
How swiftly moves our time on earth
before we part with sad goodbyes?
And in-between, what does it mean?
It all concerns the seeds we sow.
For love and love alone ensures
the worth of all we choose to grow.

The really wise understand how to live on this earth. If life could be described in just a word, it would be fleeting and the need of every human is nothing but love. The message in the poem is profound and urgent and is so well enhanced by the great rhyming.

Thank you Weeping willow for your thoughts. Your visit most appreciated.

The seeds we sow ~ how they grow...depends on our individual take on life. For me the saying,"if you could live your life again what would you change?' I'd say emphatically - nothing! With all the ups and downs life has been good. Your poem has brought home how lucky I have been. Thank you.

Not up to much today. Fingers crossed for tomorrow :)
Short but sweet, very sweet! A little poem that gives both joy and sadness, but more joy than sadness.

Many thanks BlackPrince for your visit. Most appreciated.

We reap what we sow. We must plant love and leave a legacy for others to enjoy. Your wisdom is surpassing and encompassing. We grow with love and diminish with hate.
Marvelous you.

Never a truer thought expressed, we have to have hope that any bad seeds sown will be smothered by the good and love will prevail even in the hardest of times..

Love is the thread that runs through all religions, and it’s obvious why. Every succeeding generation’s existence depends on love, intimate and otherwise. Well said, Chris.

A real gem, Chris. And a real treat, finding this as the first stop on my return to WC. It is witty, succinct, and well rhymed and imaged -- especially line 2. Indeed, the choices we make and the gifts we bestow are often key to contentment in later life. Sadly, love freely given but harshly forsaken can break a heart. We humans can only do our best in good faith. Without lost love and loneliness, poets and songwriters would be disarmed. Well done.

How true this is Chris, love and feelings may be fleeting like our lives on this planet. And what does it all mean, in between? Life is the choices we make in many ways, often determined by our feelings, love being the strongest of all.
Lovely imagery
