Love’s Promise

Love’s peril awaits

Those who dare choose her adventure

To launch their hearts

Across the bow of uncertainty


Into love’s tempestuous seas

Leaving the safety of telluric harbor

For a certitude of uncertainty


The hero of our tale

Handcrafted poetry by John Hines, 12/15/2015

I couldn’t decide on the need for punctuation in this poem so I left it without punctuation after wrestling with at least ending with a period.  The story of love for our hero goes on…

Perhaps the lack of presence of punctuation represents the openness to uncertainty one must have to love and to be loved…the openness one must have to the promise of peril one opens oneself up to when one opens oneself to love.
