Love is
vernacular, to be particularly consonant.
It is signature,
pared-to-the-essence structures,
distinctive geometries.
Perhaps it is a nearly lifelong obsession,
an uncommon admiration.
Love is shared passions,
two intersecting axes
flooding a space with light.
It is a collection,
a knowledge,
an understanding,
linking together the stories behind everything.
Love is elegantly minimal.
It is good fortune.
It is childhood dreams.
Love is
long before vineyards and villas,
long after the end of time.

Jane, You have shown, in this poem, the delight of discovery/uncovery in found poetry. Who woulda thunk an article in Better Homes & Gardens would reap (ha ha) such poetry!
