Anticipation~Ottava Rima

The Violet's Message
The Violet’s Message by John Everette Mallais

One day the message came unheralded

Brought by her closest friend early one day

Nervously, with trembling hands she opened

Temptation was strong to push it away

Scent of violets rose unabated

Her fears had surely led her far astray

Scribed on this note were promises of love

With this affection her heart rose above

I have been writing all my life but for the most part, it has been a secret. My parents did not believe writing was a good way to earn money so I hid my poems. Then one day, I wanted to comment on an essay that a friend had written and found myself with a blog. That quiet whisper inside said, "You can write your poetry and no one will ever know.". I knew nothing of followers and the like at that time. So, here I am trying to learn my craft and enjoying every moment of it. My personal details are, I'm 57, married for 39 years, have one grown son who is God's gift to us and last but not least at all, I'm a Baha'i which basically means that I love all humanity.

    Just shows how love can overcome! It can break the heart but it can also create and sustain the joys of life! Great lines CC!
