I don’t care if it’s been written before
or if writing about love is cliche…

here are the facts:
I’m an earthy, passionate woman
who is in love,
and deeply so.

I’m in love with the words
and the earth and the sea
and the way the open air smells.

Daily, I fall in love and in lust
and I swoon with the art all around me.

Yes, I’m a sensual romantic
who’s stimulated
by intelligent conversation.

I’m so very much in love,
so I think I’ll keep writing about that.

  1. great profile pic and well written poem. Hi there. I wanted to invite you to stop by my blog. I share stories from my book The Driveway Rules. These are my memoirs detailing what is has been like dealing with life and love while having undiagnosed Asperger’s syndrome. Hope to see you there!


    • Thank you, yes it’s something not to give up on or ignore. There are many shades of love, paint them with words or ink or pencil or whatever!
