looping a piece of string
or a part of it interlaced
decorative or just practical
tying together the ends

a ceremony where hearts are tied
together two people live as man and wife
scions of love their unions bore
proving the knot of love is pure

knots when wrongly handled
can maim or kill or disable
knots of love or knots of hate
the former, its yours to embrace

Bluer than Blue

green is to be young
the dawn of a new season
then you came into my life
when we were still not man and wife

greener days like the life of a tree
when time begins to move and flowing free
gentle whispers blown by different winds
green hearts of ours echoed the footprints

as we lived our lives and gambled our youth
we found ourselves hiding the ultimate truth
unforseen drama of different shades and hue
the promise of Spring turned to lonely blue

now the leaves of the once greener young tree
crumbled to the ground without a trace of glee
the love that we shared was left for another
bluer than blue, the green leaves of Summer
