Hello once again! I'm on a roll this week. It always feels good when the creativity bug bites and the words flow freely.

Week 21 was age. What came to mind for me was one of my favorite things: seeing an older couple walking hand in hand out in public. Every time I witness this, my heart fills with joy. It's a truly beautiful sight. That is essentially what my response is about.

Thank you Brenda!


True Love

There's nothing sweeter

than an old couple

walking hand in hand

still in love

after all those years.

From a time

when forever

was a word of value

and vows weren't said lightly.

A treasure to hold dear,

something to aspire to.

Building a life.

Raising a family.

Experiencing joys,

holding each other tightly

through trials and tribulations.

As beauty fades,

friendship only grows stronger.

A true partner.

There's nothing sweeter

than witnessing

this strength of love

than perhaps

living it yourself.
