Love In Ten Lines

I have received a challenge from Annet over at Annarette to write a Love poem in ten lines. Always up for a writing challenge (lately!) here is my attempt.  An image is not necessary but this little collage is full of love!


Love In Ten Lines

Where is the Love?
Love is all around

Some fear Love’s clutches
Yes, Love can hurt

Fear not Love’s pain
Love teaches us strength

Love shows us how
We grow in Love

Reach out for Love
Share Love with all

My quote is:

“Tis better to have loved and lost
Than never to have loved at all.”
Alfred Tennyson, In Memoriam

The challenge works like this:

  • Write about love using only 10 lines.
  • Use the word love in every line.
  • Each line can only be 4 words long.
  • Nominate others who are up for the challenge.
  • Let them know about the challenge.
  • Title the post:  Love in Ten Lines
  • Include a quote about love ( this can be your own)
  • You may write in any language

So, without further ado, I nominate the following.  Please note that should you not feel like participating, I will love you no less!

  1. Sarah at Sarah Potter Writes
  2. John at Meticulous Mick
  3. Andrea at Harvesting Hecate
  4. Rochelle at Addicted to Purple
  5. Sue at Daily Echo
  6. Dale at Eats Writes Shoots
  7. Raye at Jots from a Small Apt

Do have fun with it!  Looking forward to your submissions!

  2. This is beautiful, Dale, and so life affirming with the people who bring such joy because they are our tribe. Your poem encapsulates what love demands and provides; life would be empty without it. And those heartwarming photos are such a bonus . As aaTiny Tim said, “God Bless You, One and All”.

  3. Way to step up to the plate. Simple, wide-ranging, and from the heart. Well done! … Off topic … You aren’t a shorty. 😉 … How tall are you?
