"Everyday in every way I’m getting better and better" - Emile Coue
smiles...pretty amazing how life can turn like that and make our thoughts only of the beauty of things...
How wonderful to take the shattered image and write it whole again. This is a marvellous approach to the challenge, Grace.
Definitely the correct way. Great write.
Love this take! I chose the same photo, but I like yours better. ;)
Yeah great how life can turn on a dime in a new direction, all the better when you don't see it coming too.
I really like these lines:"rough rat's hair and pebbled foreheadand how tough as a glass I am"(You have a couple of typos:"every since" should be "ever since""fushia" should be "fuchsia")
Thanks Shawna ~ I was posting then running out ~
I love the change in perspective being in love gives a person....from everything rough to softness of sand...........lovely. Also uplifting to read.
What a difference meeting someone new can make! Love this transformation from first to second stanza. Very nicely done.
This is beautiful, Grace. I admire what you did with that picture... You met the challenge wonderfully. (visiting from the Poetry Pantry)
Being compelled to write about splendor...that's a great day.
beautiful take on the picture.love does lend meaning to the chaos we otherwise are in and shapes our rudderless wanderings.nicely wrought.
Ain't it a bother how love can take that edge off our cool poetry?!! ;)
Liked the beginning, smiled at the end.
Love can do wonders. Love can make the hurts go away. Very nice ideas, Grace. I like the transition your poem makes. ..
How love can turn our harshness into softness and beauty...nice work!!
Aww! Love this!
Dear Grace,Good stuff here. Loved the last stanza of course. Thanks for sharing.
awwwwww..so sweet Ms.Grace I love it..oh ok just giggling hahaha ;)
Let's hope nobody has a pebbled forehead left after reading your poem! LOL :)
the magic of love....!!
I love the initial description and the explanation...feeling of love so smooth and vibrant! Great writing!
Absolutely lovely!!!! My favorite so far of your poems!
I like how the poem starts off with negative feelings, but when you get to the second stanza, all of that is changed because of the feelings of love. Cleverly composed as well as beautiful. :)
a person can make so much difference! Yes, and we all experience this. So well put in words here.
Love what you did with your words to match the photo Grace....a beautiful poem! :-)
Wonderful! the juxtaposition of themes and transition between are well done.
