Why Do People Love?

Author:

What Were You Thinking?

Maybe we think alike?

It makes me feel passionate about the next thing I do

The love slowly spreads to all other areas of my life

Then no matter what life throws at me

I am having the best day ever

There is so much good in every moment

The bad no matter how awful it can be

Is only the smallest, tinniest fraction compared all the wonderful emotions we actually have

I often feel life is like an old 25th anniversary sterling silver silverware set

That is dull and unattractive

Pushed way in back in a kitchen cabnet

Covered in plastic

Forgotten about for years

First you have to want to pull it out

Then you have to take the time

Cleaning by hand

it goes by so slow

As much as you want to speed it up

You can't

You polish and shine it for hours

Then you see a glimpse of hope

As a beautiful shine comes back

So begin as I do

Transforming my old into something new

It is easy to talk it up

The real challenge is in the doing

Then when all is said and done

We can think of the time we cursed and our fingers hurt

How we made it happen

We now love what we are doing

As someone younger might say

I feel wicked good

In my perspective

I wrap around each feeling

Lovely as life should be

Experiencing the small setbacks

Made us appreciate every new moment

I was there

Living and creating every action

To reinforce the good and use the bad

As a stepping stone for more good to follow

It can be the foundation

Going so deep

That few people will ever know

The deep underground

Leaving the good to be spotted from miles away

Breathless and I can relax for a little bit

Until my next project

As imaginary personal awards lie deep in my brain

They are all my fantastic thoughts

That one day

Someone with lots of talent

Will find a real solution

To an old problem

Most people feel but don't want to tackle

How to make it happen

A way to create pictures with feelings

So we can go back and relive them over and over

I want to be that person

Once again my dreams are larger than life

Only time will tell

When all our beautiful thoughts

Can be found real easy

Like picking out a bunch of bannanas

You can get a small bunch or a larger one if you desire

Each bunch is special and unique for everyone

You can get the really ripe ones

That you have to use today

The bannanas that will rippen in a couple of days

Then again go for it

Buy a mixed bunch

A little of everything

Pick up the green bannanas that will rippen over time

They won't be ready for a few days or even a week

We have to keep checking them every day

If we are not careful

Even the good bannanas

Will go bad

Gypsy Rose Lee How great is that. Love, love and more love. I can't think of a better way to begin any day. Thank you for your interest and constant updates on your writing progress and in this wonderful place called life. I am still exploring every avenue and I still end up going down those dark roads that lead to nowhere. So as much as I go forward I walk sideways and trip and fall more often than not. Luckily just a few of my good friends see me and laugh and at the same time offer a helping hand to pick me up. Thank you for always being a kind soul. Today looks sunny and nice. If I didn't know any better I would think I was in Florida. Have a pleasurable morning. Don't forget to give all your lovely furry friends hugs and kisses from Miss Charlotte.

John Hansen I am always amazed at the things that you say and do. Sometimes I run out of time. Much more lately for some crazy reason. I have to do things in order of importance and writing gets shoved to the back burner. I have to say I don't like that and I don't feel good about that. At the same time, there is no way to change it. Unless I can figure out how to add more hours to every day. No that won't work either I would just increase my list of things to do. What I can do is a little at a time until things get done. Progress may be slow but it is well worth it. I can now enjoy the calmness and beauty that comes after the storm. Thank you so much for all your continued respect. Wishing you a day filled with wonder and imagination. That is where life can be promising but never boring. Have a lovely morning.

Brenda Arledge It is so nice to be appreciated and noticed. Then when we are we are thrown back and not use to the great appreciation. Do to other unexpected circumstances we don't even get to thank the people who help us so much. Until we find a way. Stop and see little progress where there was none. Take another step forward even though we had recently taken five steps back. Life is not a race to the finish. Instead, it is a joyful walk through a wonderful park. Seeing all the beauty that jumps out at us and still looking for more beauty hidden just under the leaves and behind the trees. Thank you for your time and effort to express your interest in my poem. May you have a beautiful day and express the sweetest happiness in the next days to come.

Bill Holand It is really quite funny actually, I can't stop laughing. After I wrote this I had so many little things going on and could not put my finger on them. I felt like I was on a wagon train in the old west and we had to circle around in a hurry. With the Indians off in a distance ready to attack in any moment. Things didn't look good. They were going to get a lot worse before they would get better. I had to believe there was a way out. Even though I couldn't think of one dang way. As I tossed and turned and spun every thought freely in my head. I came out with the same bleak result. Then the rain came down. Then harder and harder. No end in sight. The Indians who clearly had the upper hand. Were not up for the challenge. They knew they could strike at another time and it would be a lot easier. So they decided just to stop and change their plans. Leaving us alone. We waved goodbye and they also waved back. Nobody harmed and we all left a little bit wiser. Things take time. Sometimes we have to slow our life way, way down. Take a breather and resume when we are ready. Thank you for being so patient for my response and that's the best explanation I can give at this moment. I appreciate all your comments and thoughtfulness. Now I am ready to write away into the sunset.

My life has settled finally. I am watching over two cats my own dear Sid, mama Oreo and four kittens Charlie, Hopalong, Blackie, and Rambo. This is how my life will be filled with love from now on.

John Hansen from Queensland Australia on June 20, 2019:

BRENDA ARLEDGE from Washington Court House on June 20, 2019:

This is a good write.

I love this part, "Pushed way in back in a kitchen cabnet

Covered in plastic

Forgotten about for years"

Nice job!

Like picking out a bunch of bananas....brilliant!

Any poem about love is an instant classic in my mind.

Blessings and love coming your way!
