Love Takes Flight

When life took hold and breathed a sigh,

A life it tried to take,

One sigh is all it needed, should

But love grew in it’s way.

Love’s roots went deep, beyond the sigh,

Beyond what should have weeped,

For as it grew, a life took hold

Upon the underneath.

Stretching forth, it’s breath did take

With warmth that sun gave birth

With budding shoots from ground,

Bursting through

And wings began to show.

Colours, Rainbows around shone bright

Around life’s park, delight,

For love of life, new courage brought

The wings of love, take flight.

    An excellent companion piece to ” Outside ” . ( Editorial note:- The third line,”One sigh is all it needed” is perfectly adequate , the additional ” , should ” appears redundant within the context of that line.)
