wonder of love did transcend the divide

The given words:
3WW  -  chilly glorious petite
And prompt at:
d'Verse  -  savor the beauty and sharing it

They had it going for quite sometime
The wonder of love did transcend the divide
Pretty little darling awesome partner for a lifetime
Providence with divine intervention had to decide

Pretty much like the receding cold months
Why had it suddenly gone chilly
Glorious future awaited but now abandoned
Petite lady and dashing beau looking silly

Asian lady given to natural beauty
Ever wanting to share divergent views
Demure in make up perhaps foreign initially
Success in a union based on tested values

Can mixed marriages be given the space
to make it work and forgetting differences
Rather transposed into the similarities laced
with love the pull factor in a working environment

For Thomg's hosting of 3WW week #402 and
Mary's at d'Verse Poetics


  1. as a gardener... this made me smile

  2. Perhaps we should always look for similarities rather than differences in all our encounters with others...thoughtful write Hank

    1. I agree. It's so easy to see the differences, but sometimes not so easy to see the similarities. All the more reason to look for them!

  3. Between individuals, as in the garden, one has to strike a delicate balance between being similar enough to grow well together but different enough to be always fresh and interesting.

  4. A fascinating exploration of beauty here, Hank. Always good when the wonder of love can transcend the divide...

  5. Differences are what we always notice first, but they could be more alike then we think

  6. Oh yes, bottom line is this, Love always has a way of making things work.

  7. i do firmly believe that love can bridge any divide - no matter how huge it might be

  8. Metaphysically, love is the common denominator for the entire universe, regardless of the problem or conflict; nice take on several prompts.

  9. There is beauty to be found in diversity--and so many lessons to be learned in the garden which is why I love to be working in one.

  10. I do so miss my garden and wildlife, this was wonderful Hank. Thanks for sharing the beauty of the garden with so many.

  11. Indeed a beautiful piece - you have weaved a wonderful tale of romance. A cool write.

  12. beauty can be seen from many different aspects in life... amazing take for both prompts!!

  13. Truly .. difference are only skin-deep.. similarities go deep into the soul.. people not seeing that probably lack the soul to see that.

  14. Love would do that, conquer differences and colours of our skin ~

  15. The beauty of love and affection is that it does transcend barriers of colour, race and even language.

  16. A fine way to open the topic, to enter the love of bug for leaf, of 2 foreign to each other. Ah! I believe in these relationships, progeny or no. We take our happiness where it's mutual, when we can.

  17. A beautiful garden and poem indeed. The differences and the similarities all working together to give life and share it. Hayes Spencer is kanzensakura.

  18. Finding the common ground helps to close the gap and make things grow.
