Each week we examine a theme from a variety of points of view. The theme for this week is anniversaries.
Today’s poem is a 2nd anniversary poem about the movement from passion to love.
I welcome comments on my poems at http://nicholasgordon.blogspot.com.
Happy second anniversary!
Adjustments have been made, and time moves on.
Pleasure is routine, compulsory;
Paradise is just another dawn.
Yet there is yet a bloom upon the rose
So long as there is charity and will.
Even as the passion comes and goes,
Caring is the best seducer still.
Of time and love there is much to be learned;
No happiness can last unless it's earned,
Depending on your need, desire, and skill.
