Cracks Unseen


MAGPIE 92

Lovers
Gently caressing
 As though
The other  
Might break

Holding 
Heads  carefully
So tenderly
Yet hesitant
Embryonic

First
Taste of  love
Torsos curved
Totally at one
United

Exquisite
Body formation
A zigzag
Future cracks
Unseen

  1. In the case of Newman and Woodward were there any cracks?

    Interesting that your take was so very different than mine. Married vs single?

  4. Isn't it lovely that Paul and Joanne didn't have cracks in their long marriage, we should all be that fortunate. It takes work to make a good marriage.

  12. Thank you everyone.

    I really didn't want to say it but it has been said that the marriage wasn't all it was 'cracked' up to be! But then again, which marriage is?
