Read my serial novel Magnum Opus on Kindle Vella

Love can be like lightning: all of a sudden
Electric shock goes tingling to the toes.
In some, however, it can come quite slowly,
Spilling over sandbags as it grows.

However love first shows itself, a marriage
Alters all its labyrinthine ways:
Seismic shifts deep down restructure mountains;
Homes jiggle as some expectation sways.

All you have and are is now together.
Love shapes not just your feelings but your lives.
Each must choose each day to love the other,
Needing more than life what love decides.
