Yours, mine, or: Divine?

An Alouette

Can you feel the love
Tonight, high above
These starlit skies? It is mine
And yours, ours both, for
It's our shared growth, or
Perhaps it's fierce force (divine?)...
Who knows? Not I. Do
You? I once wooed you;
Now, together, one and two,
Thus entwined, we pull
At each other, full
Of this: sparkling, binding, true.

  1. Sigh. This is gorgeous. Very big congrats, and thanks for sharing the sparkling (and definitely divine!) romance with us all. ❀️

  2. This is so touchingly beautiful! (and the execution of the form as well.) A lasting love must acknowledge the oneness of the union and also celebrate the uniqueness of each individual…

  3. Lovely, sweet poem, David! ❀ "It's our shared growth." To me, the test of any relationship is whether it allows the partners to grow! "Am I a better person because I am in this relationship? Or am I less?" The photo pairs well with the poem.
    Wishing you and your wife many more years of shared growth and happiness! ❀
