No
Not love at first sight
Nor at first night

But slowly, over the years

a walk in the neighbourhood
under monsoon skies

a summer of planting and
harvesting cherry tomatoes

holding hands in a distant land
curling up in our old couch
stealing a peck in room full of people

slow dancing our way through life

slowly but surely
moments weave us together
to be one in love
slowly but surely
forever.

This is written for the prompt ‘slowly’ at Real Toads.

Slowly, but surely

    aha love the line, ‘not love at first sight or first night but surely forever. You write beautifully and bringing your own twist that teases the readers with aesthetic taste.

    Often love is like a good wine. It needs time to develop and gets better and deeper in taste every year. Beautifully penned
    Merry Christmas to you!

    There’s a lot to be said for the strength of relationships like that. I’m quite thankful I have one. 🙂
