Love In Ten Lines

Love in ten lines

I was scrolling a few evenings ago when I stumbled upon an interesting challenge posted by taehreh; write a poem about love in ten lines.  She wrote a beautiful poem, which you can read here.  I nearly forgot, but realizing that it is National Poetry Month jogged my memory. I took a bit of a different approach when writing this one.  I do hope you enjoy it.

I nominate anyone who has taken their time to read my poem to write one as well.  Leave a link in the comments.  Now, what we all love and loathe, the rules:

– Write about love using only 10 lines.
– Use the word love in every line.
– Each line can only be 4 words long.
– Title the post, Love in Ten Lines
– Include a quote about love ( this can be your own).
– You may write in any language.
– Nominate 10 or more who are up for the challenge.
– Let them know about the challenge.

  1. Wonderful take… you’ve really captured how caught up in and powerless we can be to love. The last line will be resonating with me for a long time, I know. It’s amazing how effective words can be, and especially in such an interesting format as this. So glad you decided to partake in the challenge, it was a pleasure to read your piece. Thank you for sharing xo
