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 13th anniversary poem about luck in love.
I welcome comments on my poems at http://nicholasgordon.blogspot.com.
The luck in love lies mainly at the start,
Having to do with meeting and attraction.
Indeed, the passion that undoes the heart
Remains, at heart, a chemical reaction.
Thereafter, love is on its own, and must
Each hour, each day, each year renew its glory.
Ellipsis may be suitable for lust;
No love lasts long without a proper story.
The luck in love for us lies far behind:
Here love is knowing, wise, and far from blind.
