Everything Seems Brighter

by Sherry Riter in Poem


An emotion…

A feeling…

A state…

An attitude…

No words give it justice.

No words can truly define it.

“Love is a symbol of eternity.

It wipes out all sense of time,

destroying all memory of a beginning

and all fear of an end.”

~Author Unknown~

Love must be as much a light, as it is a flame.

~Henry David Thoreau~

Love is the condition in which

the happiness of another person

is essential to your own.

~Robert Heinlein~

Love is a wondrous emotion…

It can fill the day with sunshine

and warm the coldest night.

Love adds color to life…

And everything seems brighter.

~The Redhead Riter~

I 'm over Sits. Your blog is lovely.
Your pictures totally brighten up
my day.
I'd love if both followed each other:)
Have a great day!

Oh, that was just gorgeous! I was enjoying the pictures and the quotes – I didn't see the color coming! Very clever!

Love all the bright VIBRANT color of the photos. This made me smile…

The black and whites are awesome and then to see them in color! I had to do a picture on shadows and grays-your shots remind me of that class! The pictures, even though they're the same, are different. Another class was we had to reverse the negative, in other words, I took a picture of a graveyard, and the images in black ended up being white. They were pretty spooky but awesome! Great post!
