metaphor of the evolution of love
inspired by love, for love, and written with love

for you Michael




The Tree Of Love

The Tree of Love reaches deep and soars high
While roots seek nourishment, branches reach to the sky.
A seed at first, then a sapling it becomes
Gaining in strength as time goes on.
Tenderness of care feed and provide
A fertile ground where love can abide.
Through gentle warm days and frozen cold nights,
The tree endures through blessings and blights.
Though droughts may plague and storms batter and tear
The Tree of Love will always be there.
For the foundation is planted in solid ground;
The never-ending love is perfectly sound.
Fruits are produced and spawn new life
As the Tree of Love involves husband and wife
Bearing and sharing in solidarity
The Tree of Love grows beautifully.

What a beautifully woven metaphor you got here my friend. I hope it will continue to grow. I hope it will continue to bear fruit. I hope it will continue to sow the seeds for the generations to come. Great words!(WLS)

And this poem flows beautifully,
From your heart to my heart.
From your soul to my soul.
May your love always thrive so,
May the tree grow and grow,
Bear fruits delicious sweet
For your offsprings to eat...

(((Hugs my friend)))
Love, Zoya

And this tree has grown and grown
No more beautiful tree was ever sown
The branches soothe every trouble
The roots so deep this love comes double
In total everlasting worship of eath other

Katherine this is a beautiful poem and the love goes on and on and on
