Love That Is A Lamp

Here is a poem about Love; married love; enduring love….
from my book,
What Holds Us.  (photo credit unknown)

Love That is a Lamp

Give me a story
with a gorgeous
ebbing shoreline
a few green fields
a modest house
a garden
and enduring love
not the
ravishing
heat that could
burn a village
down
but a love steadfast
faithful
aware of its own
good fortune
love that is
a lamp unto itself
trusting
willing
longed for
and held
an inner ember
glowing
triumphant
in its knowing
told and retold
perhaps simply
offered
given
received
and
understood.

~Ingrid Goff-Maidoff,
from the Book What Holds Us
