Poetry Friday -- Love




LOVE IS A PLACE
by e.e. cummings

love is a place
& through this place of
love move
(with brightness of peace)
all places

yes is a world
& in this world of
yes live
(skilfully curled)
all worlds




I wish for you this place that is all places, this world that is all worlds. 
I wish for you a love so big that one day cannot contain it. 
 

Cathy has the Poetry Friday Roundup this week at Merely Day by Day.
