Love by Maureen Sudlow

Love is a song
that infiltrates silence
with the sound of laughter
Love is the softness
of a dog’s coat
under a grieving hand.
Love is an elderly couple
holding hands
on a park bench.
Love is the scent
of violets
in an empty room.
Love is
a risk that  you take
to fully live.

  1. Both delightful and disturbing Maureen. With so many love poems concentrating on either euphoria or heartbreak, your astute observations on the reality of love is refreshing. My congratulations on such a touching, concise and expressive piece.

  2. Thank you for your comments Mike and DF Paul. Welcome Maureen Sudlow with this succinct and genuine contemplation of love.
