The Tie That Binds

There is a tie that binds;
An evolutionary thread
Spun at the onset
Of love.
Woven as the spider
Weaves and interlaces
Her web, it grows and
Strengthens to
Survive the onslaught
Of the unknown and
The venomous
Lurking dangerous and silent in the
Shadows of our lives.

This tie, sometimes bent but
Never broken, stands as a
Steely strand
Between us
Until the end of our
Allotted time
In this world
Binding love with
Passion and trust,
Growing stronger with the
Dawn that glows
With the promise of a
A new day.

I suspect this is a homage to Lois Anne? Bravo!
Léia's words: love takes many turns but always finds the path to the heart...
God bless you!

Your poem is really touching, and the image is delightful. It's taken me awhile to find my way to this blog, and I'll be back! I did't know you draw, too. These line images are charming.

Dear friend,
Thanks so much for your support.The French tests are going fine, almost finished it, after 5 months I'm doing well with it.But the real examination about French progress I do myself, as I said before it's great when I can go shopping with confidence or can understand the French Canals at television here.
You are so kind, thanks a lot!
I will have a break next week, I mean about my lessons and after it I will start another book a new challenge and so on.
And I will keep doing my best! :)
Ahh I just wrote here because I want more from your creative ideas and posts here.Please, don't forget this blog okay!
*** of course you don't need to publish this lonnnng comment as well!

Jacob said...

@ Leia - I'm so glad that you're doing so well with your French lessons!

What is your new book?

I really haven't forgotten this blog, I've just been too busy trying to keep up with all the other ones...

But I did post another poem today...about how a "vacation" can be a catalyst to free us up to live and love creatively!

Thank you for caring and being such a good friend!

So beautiful, touching, filled with love and hope. This is an ideal state of “tying the knot.” I like all the description in this poem. Have happy days ahead, Lois and Lowell.
