Love Rising


Out of the ashes
our love will rise
finally complete and full


The tenderness of our love
will heal the painful past
of mixed up feelings and forget-me-nots


Of wanderings far and wide
over hill and dale
and deep blue sea


The beauty of our love
will rise with the sun
through a sky cerulean


Touched by the petals
of a rose so sweet
thorns protect so deep


The passions of our love
will sooth
our battered hearts


Strong will we be
against the tide
of doubts and shadows of fears


Out of the ashes
our love will rise
finally complete and full

Suzette,
Lovely, lovely poem. The phoenix rising from the ashes, rebirth, renewal, one of my favorite metaphors. Beautiful language.

Out of the ashes - a shame that so many of us are reduced to ashes in this process called life. Your poetry certainly provides a gleamer of light.

Well my 'love' always rises and my temperature too (lol) when I arrive here on your scene my sensational Miss Suzette. The Supremes did a song about it called The Happening!!!!! lol
Just woke up from night shift sleep to an overcast day again as if summer never happened (WTF) but the sun is shining right now because I am here with you with my first cup of coffee and a nice Vivaldi concerto.
Sending to you some really great energy from the three of us - Colin , and Tiffy and Gabriel - one more night shift and I am off for the weekend and a fabulous film to recommend to you - Wings of Desire by Wm Wenders - check it out on you tube and also The Haunting the original not the remake from 1963 by the director who helmed The Sound of Music - Robert Wise , also on you tube

Thanks so much Epi. I appreciate your visit and for reading this. I love Vivaldi, especially his 'Four Seasons.' It was sunny yesterday, but today is overcast and 'chilly' - only up to 70 degrees F today. Glad to hear you, Tiffy and Gabriel are doing fine. Give the kitties my love. Don't work too hard this week. Hope you get a better shift for next week. Thanks for the film recommendations I will certainly look into them. Take care!

Hi Suzette, this is a very beautiful and optimistic poem. You words are lovingly and carefully chosen, and really make the 'ambience' of it. Your pictures are literally out of this world, and really add to your theme. Wonderful effort!
