Love Unwrapped

There is vulnerability
in unconditional love.
Sensual giving,
baring our souls.
We commune
in tonight’s passion
and tomorrow’s mundane.
We are,
as love is.

    Delicate and vulnerable. Very much in the present, lovingly mindful. Lovely.

    I like the communing in the passion and the mundane.

    This was such a delicate take on the prompt, lillian. Just lovely!

    You and I were of similar minds for this prompt. The tenderness in your poem is palpable. As we all, over the years get to know each other through our poetry, we kind of fall in love with the goodness we receive through fellowship.

    That unconditional prompt is the key. Love this one:

    We commune
    in tonight’s passion
    and tomorrow’s mundane.

    “We commune
    in tonight’s passion
    and tomorrow’s mundane.”

    I love the way you worded that. So true.

    This is beautiful Lillian, tender and truthful – elegantly sensual… 🙂

    There is a certain gentleness in this exploration of desire — the last line seals the deal with that beautiful pronouncement. Such a lovely take! 🙂

    oh yes. you captured love and sensuality so well, Lillian!

    I love the ambiguous title, Lill, and the the contrast of ‘tonight’s passion and tomorrow’s mundane’ which merges into unconditional love. .

    Tonight’s passion and tomorrows mundane! The Bipolarism of love. Love it!


  13. Laura Bloomsbury November 21, 2018 / 11:30 am

    love the brevity and the contrasting love of love by night and by day!

    i like the balance of passion and the mundane, as one very easily leads to the other. Vulnerability is scary Lillian, but not with the right person. love your poem very much, it embodies trust and hope.
