Love in Ten Lines

Beautiful Taehreh (Some Call It Red) from Calgary, Canada, challenged me to write a poem about love in ten lines, a challenge forwarded to her from a friend.

Here are her guidelines:

  1. Write about love using only 10 lines.
  2. Use the word love in every line.
  3. Each line can only be 4 words long.
  4. Nominate 10 or so others who are up for the challenge.
  5. Let them know about the challenge.
  6. Title the post, Love in Ten Lines.
  7. Include a quote about love. (This can be your own.)
  8. You may write in any language.

Here is my entry:

Love in Ten Lines

Love is not silent,

yet love is loud;

love is invisible, yet

love is a portrait;

head-over-heels love

makes moonlit romantic love

worth the troubles love

brings us; and, “Love

that springs love eternal

is the best love.”*

    Ahh! You included the quote in the lines…. so sneaky! Brilliant! (Why didn’t I think of that? :))

    You have written the kind of love that everyone dreams of having. Really touched me. So glad you took up the challenge, Ron! xoxo (and so wonderfully as I knew you would!)
