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.

I really love this piece, asking the questions and finding them in the heart not the head. If only everyone felt a poets pen...it makes a difference.

Sadly, sometimes I feel even love isn't enough... but you're right, time does move swiftly and all that matters is how we lived in the end.
Nice flow here :)

Its a great starting line about the comet, it may be fleeting but its sudden and bursting nature never fails to first take us off guard and then sow wonder at the enormity of it all. But alas we forget that which enthralls us quickly, and remember only those things that seem to affect us now. It would be good to remember.

we may not have that much time on earth, when put in perspective, but if we love while we are here, we will make the most of that comet that is our life.

Can't disagree with your thoughts Jacob. Thanks for checking this one out.
A very sage, sweet yet profound piece bringing the universe and mankind and our purpose on earth together in a very well constructed rhyming verse.
