Two love birds


Two love birds:
Singing together,
Perching together,
Roaming together.

Two love birds:
Seeing each second,
Floating each minute,
Drooping each hour.

Two love birds:
Nesting together,
Slumbering together,
Brooding together.

Two love birds:
Eating each second,
Drinking each minute,
Chirping each hour.

Aye, two love birds! :
Not dying together.

    Two beautiful souls sharing the physical plane of existence together. But in the
    grander scheme of eternal life each individual re-enters the fold but still remains
    within the singularity, or the masters plan. I love the way you have written this
    one..... very powerful........and loving

    Two love birds, well written and holds together very well, The last verse pulls the whole together and gives the poem its stand to perch upon.

Poem of the Day

poet Henry David Thoreau

My books I'd fain cast off, I cannot read,
'Twixt every page my thoughts go stray at large
Down in the meadow, where is richer feed,
And will not mind to hit their proper targe.
