Volcanic Love

      Let’s reflect on love for a moment. When love is new, it is the most magnificent feeling a person can have. But if allowed to become mundane and taken for granted, it ceases to excite. And the once vibrant, all-consuming fervor, cools, then chills, then….

 So, with that in my head, (for no apparent reason,) back into the archives I went. And I came up with this one from last September, it is a bit more mushy romantic, than what I usually write, but here goes. Hope you’ll like it.



Volcanic Love

The fire that is passion,

melts the rock,

that is the heart,

and allows the lava, that is love,

to flow.

And the lava, it will glow,

and it’s magma,

it will grow,

until, there is nowhere,

for it to go.

For when it cools,

the rock returns,

and the passion, no longer burns,

then the lava waits,

once more below.

    Lovely poem about the initial fire of love. After this, love is like a tender plant that needs to be nurtured – take care of it and it grows, abandon it and it dies.

  3. This is my favorite!
