Loves’ dare ~by Linda Willows

What must have suspended the breath, this night
calming to tone with all sound of delight
The hum of a heavenly bird caught sight…
the sweet song’s divine yet innocent invite.

Can another make such peace so still, inferred,
winding throughout like incense and myrrh…
calling to hum with some magical confer,
Love dared to enter and left all with her.

I ponder your many facets, the way the sun shines in each verse and the heart is revealed one line at a time. Thank you for making me stop, stare and muse in mind on this new morn! 🙂 E
