The one fall she never recovered from,
Is the only one she never regretted.
She called it love.

I hope you enjoy it, and thank you for reading. Bless.

Long enough to say it all.
Lovely. I love simple things. They’re so quiet.
All that I can say is that it simply is beautiful!!!
Thank you @crystallshae
Thanks 🙂 @pummkinpinye
Hi, thank you for liking one of my efforts. I took a ramble through your blog and have enjoyed it. Thank you for sharing. I was sorry to read about your uncle’s passing, he sounded like a really nice person. I hope you and your relations find comfort and strength through each other and in your beliefs especially during the hardship of a loved one passing. Take care
Thank you for the kind words, and for taking the time to go through my blog. I hope you liked the writing. @penlateral
Sorry for taking so long to reply. I did enjoy your writing and style. I hope you don’t mind if I drop in now and then for a rummage though your posts. take good care of yourself and those who take care of you
…your voice is as cryptic zennish proverbial chime calling one to mindfulness…i have a similar flute in my suitcase…i often use my the words of alter-ego (my totem, dafree) as an epigraph to a more lyrical & subtle excavation of my own continuously shifting perspective…do not be surprized if i quote you some time soon! ^^~~~~
I’m rather flattered that another writer would want to quote me. Your comment itself is very much like poetry. Such intricate description. Almost as if Charles. Dickens has imparted some of his thoughts into you. Thank you for the encouraging comment. I’m looking forward to reading your work (dafree’s work).
❤ one good word inspires another!
thanks for the visit. nice site you have here.
…falling is a theme in fourth quartet…ultimately love is a decision we make not something we are victimized by me thinks but such is a difficult lesson 4 the ego to accept! …<3
I agree with you.
wise as u r beautiful! ^^~~~~
Aha wise is a powerful word for me. Learning, still learning, from mistakes. Thank you 🙂
La sagesse c’est la femme. -Victor Hugo
Surprisingly, I understood that although my French is weak. I suppose this is true. Even Solomon in his proverbs refers to wisdom as “her”.
yes! Sophia is important in orthodox catholicism. Roman catholicism is chauvanistic! as u read my poetry u will find my devotion is romantic & numinous, i.e., i have but modest interest in god the father & the masculine trinity as such! in fact, i prefer woman to men in general!
You are an amazing wordsmith, I am really enjoying your work. Sometimes the shortest poems penned are the most powerful!
Thank you for checking out my blog.
You’re quite gifted 🙂
Np :). Thank you.
Sentimental, succinct, and stunning. Well done.
Reblogged this on By the Mighty Mumford and commented:
AH, YES….”THE ONE FALL…SHE NEVER REGRETTED!”
Have we truly lived having not loved? Regret is perceived in love’s undoing. We live, love and learn. Mistakes are a process and in some cases an inevitability, especially in love. Regrets…oh, but I’ve had a few…
So nice to experience your site.
I love how you made your point with so few words. Very nice!
Real nice! Thanks for stopping by today. I look forward to reading more of your poems.
Np. Thank you also.
I call it perfect fall. Nice
LOVE how you say so much in so few words. A real talent.
