WE DISCOVERED ~ our own River of Love

By chance ~ one Sunday afternoon ~ walking

Through a Local Wood ~ followed we a Snow White Dove

Ahead of US ~ just as we were talking !


By chance ~ one Sunday afternoon ~ walking

We heard the Brook ~ long before we saw it 

Ahead of US ~ just as we were talking

A sweet melodious sound ~ we could not ignore it !


We heard the Brook ~ long before we saw it

And when we did it had such mystic beauty

A sweet melodious sound ~ we could not just ignore it

To claim the RIVER as our own ~ felt like a DUTY !


And when we did it had such mystic beauty

Through a local wood ~ followed we a Snow White Dove

To claim the RIVER as our own ~ felt like a DUTY

WE DISCOVERED our own ~ River of Love !


Thanks for reading ~ comments please ~ LOVE  A & B  πŸ§‘πŸ’™πŸ§‘ 


A week ago we were versifying on each of us having a

Very Special River. Not long after we met each other 

we were walking in the local Woods laughing & talking

and we followed a Snow White Dove ~ who led us to a

Mystic Brook (see picture !) We christened it *OUR

RIVER of LOVE*  Its good to be back home ~ with BRIAN

& my Parents & Yesterday we visited our *RIVER OF LOVE*

again and prayed that all would go well with our Wedding

next Year !  Do You have your own *RIVER OF LOVE* ?

    I know only of a river in the city called 'River of Life'. It is a project to add in nature and beautifying the city with it. It it a beautiful sight during the night.

    I don't have my own river of love.
    River, waterfall, sea, ocean...somehow, I don't really associate myself with Water.
    Maybe it's because I don't know how to swim.
    I don't mind walking under the rain without an umbrella though...because to me, the rain is a blessing.

    What came to me is this:
    1. When I was reading the poem, it came to me that if I needed blessing...the easiest is to read your poem.
    2. Maybe certain things I would not be into it...but I would if someone introduced me to it...someone that would matter.


      BRIAN HERE ~ Thanks JOKER for an intersting reply ! Because I was born & bred in Liverpool (A major UK Port) we could all swim @ the age of SIX because we were always in and out of boats ! Angela & I love Swimming & Sailing and she was in her element in Auckland were most people either own or have access to a Yatch ! Thanks for your comment about Blessings ! Angela & I put a lot of effort into each of our Presentations and we trust they will be a blessing to each & everyone who reads them ! We too love torrential Rain ! The WATER CYCLE is one of God*s great purifying ~ and life giving ~ mechanisms for planet Earth ~ AMEN !

      Blessings & Peace to You & Yours
      Love ANGELA & BRIAN πŸ§‘πŸ’™πŸ§‘πŸ’™πŸ§‘

      • Fay Slimm.

        A gorgeous picture and a verse to remember for those who are still looking for their own river -- - a river of love is the best description for that close bonding you discovered. A delightful read.

        • ANGELA & BRIAN

          Thanks FAY ~ YES indeed True Love sure changes ones perception of Nature ! Pleased you enjoyed our Woodland Walk & discovery ! The picture shows just how it is ! We love Babbling Brooks & Shady Nooks !

          Sky above is sweeter BLUE
          Earth beneath is softer GREEN
          Something gleams in every hue
          LOVELESS eyes have never seen .........

          In my reply to *Thoughts in Time* I was just comparing her walk through the surf on BLOOMBERGSTRAND (Cape Town S. Africa) to our walk in the WOODS and finding our River of Love !

          Blessings & Peace & Joy
          Love BRIAN & ANGELA

          Oh beautiful and all shall be well the day of your wedding..reminds me of a poem I wrote ..’Over Yonder’ ..you’ll read it one day..I love ur river of love..🌹

          • ANGELA & BRIAN

            OOOPS KELLY ~ We have writen our reply as a comment ~ please check on the POEM ~ Thanks A & B

          • ANGELA & BRIAN

            Thanks KELLY ~ Pleased you enjoyed our presentation. The analogy of LOVE to a free flowing river is a lovely picture ! Every river has to overcome obstacles in its flow just as true love does ! When Charles & Camilla got married Andrew Motion (Poet Laureate) had to write a Poem (I will post it) He likened their relationship to a Blocked Stream which had broken loose and was now (at the time of the Wedding) flowing freely again ~ an interesting analogy ! Would live to read *Over Yonder* please post ~ thanks. Even though we were 33 & 28 when we met we didint rush to get married and start a Family ! This enabled Angela to spend 15 Months in Auckland (NZ) on a work exchange which she has greatly benefitted from ~ AMEN When we get married in April 2020 we will be 36 & 32 ! Like Harry & Meghan only she was 36 & He was 32. They now (as you know) have a lovely SON ! Angela & I are relieved we are marring into relatively *Normal Families* ! Both Families are very Happy with our forthcoming Nuptuals which is a Blessing especially as Angelas PAPA is a Spanish Wine Merchant (Rioja) !

            Blessings & Peace & Joy & Love

              Yes I love seeing different areas of life through nature and I have also written about life as a glowing river passing over the cobblestones at the bottom changing as it goes...all sounds so wonderful ..much luck and blessings🌹

              The sound of running water, whether a stream, a river or a waterfall, touches the soothing nerves somewhere in the depths of the human psyche. So hold on to your River of Love.

            • Lamar Cole

              Very Beautiful Poem.

            • Goldfinch60

              That River of Love will always be there for you as your two souls become one in love.
