Love In 10 Sentences

Hello πŸ™‚ I want to thank Terry from Through The Lens of My Life for tagging me to do the “Love in Ten Sentences” event, I love a challenge and I’m trying to sharpen my poetry skills so I’m going to give this a try. For all who don’t know, I’m a drummer and percussionist. I love it.

To Each His Own…Passion

Love is the riddim.
Love is the pain.
Love is the concentration.
Love is perfecting it.
Love is getting lost
in it, there’s love.
Grooving inΒ the love.
None can stop love.
Love! when it hits.
Drumming, is my love.

My favourite quote on love is

“It is a risk to love.
What if it doesn’t work out?
Ah, but what if it does.”

-Peter McWilliams

This goes for many things, risks in life overall, you only live once, so I believe you should give it your all.

Here are the Instructions:

  • Make a post titled Love In Ten Sentences. Use ten lines, four words in each line, include the word love in each line.
  • ShareΒ your favourite quote on love.
  • Tag and contact ten or so bloggers to give the challenge a try. (IncludeΒ a link to their blog.)
  • Have fun πŸ™‚

These are the blogs I’m tagging:

  1. Great thoughts on love you have. Just thought I’d share an old thing I wrote:

    Love is a Decision

    Love can start wars
    and kill hearts
    It can induce sickness
    and create depressing arts

    Love can blind
    to all that matters
    It can cut like a sword
    Love shatters

    Love can separate
    what should be together
    It can roar with pain
    in storm cursed weather

    Love can leave you standing
    shaking fists toward heaven
    It can make you starve
    Love threatens

    Love is precious and a decision
    be wise before handling such a gem

    Love can end wars
    and mend hearts
    It can cure disease
    and create intoxicating art

    Love can make eyes shine
    staring into a soul
    It can heal your wounds
    love glows

    Love can bring together
    for sharing blue skies again
    It can shout with victory
    and end the rain

    Love can make you kneel
    giving thanks as you sing
    It’s more precious than gold
    Wearing love as a ring

  2. Great poem and quote! Thanks for participating! πŸ™‚
    You’re a drummer! Cool! I’m not a “drummer,” but I nock the dust off my djembe occasionally with a group of people that gather to drum for fun πŸ™‚
