“Spreading the love…”

Janey over at Cupid or Cats (if you have not met this very funny lady go check her out HERE ) put me on the spot  challenged me and I’m going to attempt to rise to the occasion :).

The challenge is to write ten lines, four words to each line, each containing the word love and nominate ten others to join the challenge.  Sounds pretty simple, right? Right?!


Always looking for love

Thought you found love

That love wasn’t True

You mourned love and

tried to “love” you

But what IS love?

What’s love to you?

To ever find love

you must define love

love may find you

~Melanie Thomason

Oh!  And as far as the nominations go…you know I’m a rule breaker soooo..

I nominate YOU!

That’s right, if you are reading this, right now…

you have been challenged to Spread the Love!! Get right on that, will ya?!

    I will only attempt by bowing humbly to your creation..

    What happened to love?
    I thought love smiled.
    Love played my heart,
    pulled on every string.
    Love enslaved my mind,
    love became my wings
    Then love bid farewell,
    seduced by Love Train.
    Powerless devoid of love,
    I incarnated as Love!

    At least I tried, don’t cry………..

    • Lovely poem Sonia! 🙂 It is a pleasure to see your creation here 🙂

        Coming from your level of expert beauty in poetry and literary creativity, I know you are being very kind and generous. I messed up on the fourth line, according to the instruction, while copying from my handwriting. It should read, “love pulled every string”. It was 1:30 a.m. my time, may be I will do better next time. I just wanted you to really know how advanced you are in your divine gifting. Thank you anyway for encouraging me.

    The last time I spread the Love Melanie it upset the hell out of my first wife. 😉

  5. This was so much fun! I “LOVE” it. All the poems by the people are fun as well. Great poem and wonderful idea Melanie.
