A TENDER THING?
what's this of love a tender thing
a flood of rains will cool the skin
a dying star to grant a wish
a guitar pan strums ire magic
what sears then every heart to spin

what sears then every heart to spin
as the score of every pulse so beat
as there's seed for sowing
as fros winter into Spring
what's this of love a tender thing

  5. I think you ask the fundamental question here--what is the nature of love--perhaps you answer it for yourself as well

  9. Love the coming and going of the questions here, like in a crazy quilt where pieces repeat but in unexpected order. I prefer the tender, even if it doesn';t seem romantic enough to some.

  11. …Love renders us tender, for sure. Quite taken with "a flood of rains will cool the skin
    a dying star to grant a wish"
