A Love Knot - By Frances Nagle

A Love Knot

Picture hundreds, thousands, of threads,
as long as love is.

For instance, picture kindness – how smoothly it unfurls
when people care as much about each other as themselves.

Picture gentleness: when times are less than easy
a reassuring stream of soothing words.

And respect, the essence of being a partner,
each one delighting in the other.

And look at the joys and trials of being parents,
the challenge none of us is prepared for;

imagine the tough, flexible fibres
that nurturing a child together can create.

And see laced around and through and everywhere
diamond-twinkling filaments of laughter.
-
These profound, priceless connections start so simply –
with a smile, perhaps, or admiring glance.

Picture again these hundreds, thousands, of threads
 as long as love is; longer than life.

Today a knot is being tied
in the strands that ……... and ………

have started to spin out together.
A love-knot.   For ever.
