leeway to develop own emotions

                                                                        Artist: Pierre Auguste Cot
Image: Love -  Reminiscent of innocence (here)

sublime (tending to inspire awe usually because of
elevated quality as of beauty, nobility, or grandeur)

Catching it with a basket of nerves
Love falling down on a wild run
An implored show of manly verve
The untested could well start with fun

Reminiscent of innocence of the young
Given leeway to develop own emotions
Raised to a higher level of one so sublime
Complete with tags of outright devotion

Falling in love conjured measures of desire
Head over heels madly rushing in blindly
Falling out of love reflected stated failures
Could get second chance out of sympathy

For Sanaa's Prompt Nights #6:  -
to love would be sublime


  1. Raised to a higher level of one so sublime
    Complete with tags of outright devotion

    Lovely - its true when a person falls in love he tends to raise his level of devotion to the utmost degree. Beautifully penned. Thank you so much for participating Hank :D

    Lots of love,

  2. In and out can sure be a crushing blow to some.

  3. Love is unpredictable, forgiving, and can be an accident too. I agree as well.

  4. ah the pain of love, when the testing zone slips in
    a lovely write
    Thanks Hank for dropping in to read mine

    muc love...

    1. Great subject, great poem. Loved the read Hank.

  5. Very apt for Valentine's day! You dare to go to unconventional places where fresh ideas are found

  6. "Raised to a higher level of one so sublime"..ah..what love is...

  7. A basket of nerves is a wonderful opening image..we have to go through the process of trial and error in many things I suppose - i love the image too..very uplifting

  8. Falling in, falling out... we're always falling. Great job Hank

  9. This really captures the falling in and falling out in relationships. I like the tension and the basket of nerves.
