Love's Threads

Love's taken many forms for me:

My little sister's hand in mine,

her adult shoulder to cry on.

A handsome, green eyed young man

who now likes to disguise himself

as a nearing middle-age, graying father.

Three newborn baby boys, so tiny;

now parade as strapping young men.

I've caught a glimpse of Love,

it's ever changing forms and stories.

And I am grateful for how

Love's silken threads have carefully embroidered

the tapestry of this: my life.

Loved?  In love?  Share with us!  Visit Melissa at Making Things Up for more on Six Word Fridays!


  1. This is wonderful ~ nothing like love that stays with us over time ... seems to me to be the strongest of life's threads!

  2. Lovely, as always, Maria.

    I especially like the way you describe your husband's transformation. At least I assume your husband was the handsome, green-eyed young man... ;)

  3. This is so lovely! I liked your description of your husband's transformation, too.

  4. I love it. Love present & transforming.

    I can hardly believe how much we all change, and how quickly...

  5. there are so many kinds of love. luckily we never run out :)

  6. I love this piece - so touching.

  7. How lovely to be surrounded by the wonderful warmth of family - you words evoke that love beautifully.


Tell me what you think...
