Love: Connate

L. B. Mek

Notice of absence from L. B. Mek
'fare ye well' kind friends


Oh fairest love, how blithe thy heart’s kindness

were we but bold, and worthy valentines

our life’s vistas, serenading thine eyes

devoid of judgmental limitations,

Oh modernity, heed our humane pleas

carefree flags soar, proud: like our romances

June’s not only month for Pride’s sweet colours

refute hate and choose, love’s warmth of oneness

    She counted the number of times
    she'd had it off on valentines
    "dear you are my seventh
    or is it eleventh?
    you're all such randy old swines"

    just keeping it in the classical poetic style for you sir.

      Fine writing indeed. So appropriate for all today.

      • L. B. Mek

        oh good, 'appropriate' is good to see,
        since there's a risk readers will misunderstand
        like some have,
        thank you, dear poet

      • Fay Slimm.

        A pleasure to read the classic approach to this special day of reviewing what love really means - A beautiful rendering of the message behind Keat's quoted reminder dear Mek.

        • L. B. Mek

          thank you for highlighting that quote, dear Fay
          it's almost become a personal mantra for me
          I believe
          all of life's beauty, truth and meaningfulness
          originates from somewhere within those words..

        • Rocky Lagou

          This was written with a certain finesse that I just can't pin down but can definitely appreciate. Beautifully written! 💖👍

          • L. B. Mek

            first time my humble scribbles
            have been associated with finesse
            how very kind, dear poet
            thank you!

            An ode to true love
            A selfless one
            Not obscure
            Not insane
            No contours defined
            No one soul identified
            But love for all
            And so dignified
            Which lines keeps me hooked
            It’s a fraternity that keeps me booked
            Nothing but this poetry in all kind
            A love for all, not human but humanity defined
            Totally bow in honours of the beautiful write
            And the ending a thunder claps defined

            “ refute hate and choose, love’s warmth of oneness”

            • L. B. Mek

              Brilliant writing!
              'But love for all
              And so dignified'
              and thank you, dear Poet

            • Jerry Reynolds

              A fine write, L.B.
              Happy Valentine day I'll have cup of tea a chocolate and think of thee.

              • L. B. Mek

                wow, Jerry
                I think you have a way of telling
                which writes I get a nervous about posting
                since inevitably, you never fail
                to comment and support on them..
                what a considerate and empathetic
                humanist you are, dear poet
                I thank you! with the utmost sincerity
                and cheers 🍻

              • Goldfinch60

                Good words Mek.
                Make love, not war.


              • Neville

                my word, wot a clever fellow thou art .. a message truer than true & so very hued dear Mek ............................. N

                • L. B. Mek

                  'so very hued': Genius!
                  (forewarning I may steal that in the future
                  please add it to my mountainous tab...) lol
                  thank you, Hyung

                  L.B. A very classical touch to this poem on such a widely spoken topic. Yet hidden here in colors vivid and bright is the message to not restrict love from any but let it extend under the rainbow. Very nicely done.

                  • L. B. Mek

                    ah you've unearthed another of my personal fav's
                    'not restrict love from any but let it extend under the rainbow.'
                    I just wish I had your poetic brevity to word it so succinct
                    thank you! my kind friend
