Love's Glance #2

Love's Glance #2

A Poem by Audrey Howitt

An anniversary poem


The heart tells the story
of years together
with episodes of laughter
sparkling with
the tears
of life's tiny tragedies

wrinkled with age
folded along lines unseen
for convenient transportation
in pocket
or purse

unfolded gently
in the wave 
of autumn's starry heat

warped by the tears
of dusty roads
unkempt tar
and the asphalt of many miles

unbound in love
worn with care
this heart
radiant still
with love and heat
found fresh in the careful glance
that tentative terrain
of love's perfect glance.

Amazing write. Great job.

Though a bit battered by cosmic rays, still the romantic--ever the lover.
Unlike most, yours is not a quest to find anything; you seek to protect, preserve and enhance that precious something you already have.
I envy you, Audrey!--and truly admire your poetry.

Life long love is the greatest gift God bestows upon us. It makes life so much more worth while. Lucky or perhaps wise are those who do the work to keep love alive instead of letting it die. This is wonderful.

A beautifully written displayed tribute to your love. You seem to travel time here, yet not a word or line is over-dramatic. What a sweet and sincere poem, Audrey.

True love is like falling in love all over again when gazing upon the one who is so loved. A beautiful romantic poem!

Cool read. This feel trascendent, like a spirit of love runs through it. I like the last stanza edifies my point the most. Again, excellent read.
