So much said in this short one, Jacob. Yes, love is ever-changing and those who learn to roll with the punches are the ones who end up happy. Lydi**

Certainly seems to be that way. Not so bad if it is in keeping with the progression of the climate, in keeping with the cycle, but constant changing could be exhausting.

Acclimation, this word fell like rain for the soil that is this poem. Climate is a changing, always has been, and how insightful the seasons that pass are.

J,
After thinking over this one . . . I believe you have a good point. Love has it's calm sunny days when we lay around together soaking in the rays of each other's affection, while often we see storm clouds brewing, but never believe it will come this far . . . only to be caught in a downpour of stinging rain as we rush for cover, almost daring our lover to take the only dry space on earth . . . being too selfish to share. Shivering in the shadows we may come to our senses and realize there is plenty of room under the large umbrella of mutual appreciation.

such an insightful review, Tom...
thank you,

Nice piece of brevity which contains much wisdom. If you can't deal with a bit of inclement weather from time to time then there's not much hope for a lasting relationship. Yes you have to deal with the heat as well as the frost and in a timely fashion :)

I can never acclimatise. Its either sunburn or frostbite for me Jacob. Honestly, if this goes on much longer, I'm going to have to accept that in some minor way, it may be something I'm doing, or not, as the case me be.
If only those little minxes would tell us what we're doing wrong. Oh wait, they do. Of only they didn't 😀
Less is certainly more here Jacob. It feels like we can fill in our own blanks with this one and surmise that they are either all the same, or maybe we know the same people.
Love it.
