POETRY POTLUCK - Love and Romance...

It's Monday - POTLUCK time again!!!!

Hello and WELCOME back to the SEVENTH and lucky week of Poetry Potluck!!! 

We (Amanda and Kavita) are as pleased as ever to welcome you here... This week, we shall delve into the world of Love and Romance!! Splash on, and verse away...

Register yourself (with your name and the link to your potluck entry) using InLinkz below, and leave a comment with a pointer to your post! It would be great if you could link back to us on your blog!!!  Once you are done with this, visit other participants (at least 6), read their entries, comment, AND ENJOY!!!  The theme for this week is Love and Romance. So let your imagination soar along the heights, and immerse in the silky sands... write on! Of course, you can always submit any poem of your choice as well... 

Remember: Every week, InLinkz will be up on Sunday, at 8pm (CDT), and will stay open till Wednesday, 8am (CDT). So you will have 60 hours to share your poem with us...HOW COOL IS THAT!! Also, if you aren't new to Poetry Potluck, please note that we may not send you weekly reminders. So, it would be awesome if you could add us to your Blogroll or Favorites, so that you can stay updated with the happenings on our site!! :))

Flash Forward!! After a sinful week, we shall once again get back to being nice. So, the theme for next week will be "Halloween - Trick or Treat?!"... You will have a week to prepare your poem for this theme.. :) And if you are unable to submit a poem ON the theme, relax... Send in an older poem you would love to share with us...

And now, LET'S GET STARTED with this week's potluck!!!! Enjoy the VIDEO here and let those creative spirits flow!!! Thanks for joining in and supporting your fellow poets and our favorite Poetry Potluck!!!

The Universal Truth

It is an untamed lioness; so fierce and so wild
It can tease innocence; like candy to a child
It is a fantasy; a figment of your reverie
It lives on; longer than reality
It melts like wax; it is sweeter than honey
It can be a gourd; as bitter as it can be
It makes you do things; arouses your desire
It ain’t no myth; no dragon that spits fire
It is a weakness; makes you cry out in despair
It is a pleasant surprise; catching you unaware
It becomes an obsession; it makes you resent
It induces fear; of treason and commitment
It can be so mystic; surreal in its flow
It has but one name; it’s LOVE just as we know

Thank you very much for your continued support of my blog and invitation to Pot Luck Monday. Work commitments have meant that I've been a little inactive the last few weeks, but I'll get my act together and link up a poem.


arspoetica said...


Couldn't resist jumping in this round, not when i have a whole page on my site dedicated to "love poetry/hate poetry." ;)

So, only one link this time, but several poems on that one page, some older, some newer:


Thanks as always for putting this on, guys. You're the best!

Wanted to let you know, I have left my footprint on more than 18 writers. Tonight, I will read more of them. It is so fun to read others writings.


belladonna23 said...


there's mine, sorry if you find it slightly pessimistic. (but that doesn't mean that it is not true,or that love is pointless. it's all about how you read it.)

lynnaima said...

Hello, here is my poem: SENSUAL FLOETRY


Reflections said...

Hope you all enjoy this one.


Laura Lynn said...

Made it!

The Reason You Come said...

Oops, I didn't make it. I'm blaming it on the busy day. :( Oh well, guess I'll submit it next week to Thursday Rally, and make a new one for next week's Potluck.
