Poetic Challenge ~ “Love in Ten Sentences”


My dear friend over at Psychopathsgetbored28 tagged me in a challenge about LOVE!  Almost impossible to resist…yes?  Please check out Psychopathsgetbored’s poem…it is fantastic (in fact check out the WHOLE blog while you are there…you won’t be disappointed!) 🙂

The challenge is to write a poem about love and title it “Love in Ten Sentences.” It must have 10 lines, each 4 words long. Every line must contain the word “love.” At the end of the poem, you must include a favorite quote about love. Then challenge ten other bloggers.

“Love in Ten Sentences”

In ‘love’s‘ tender moment

my soul vibrated ‘love

love‘ for all people

love‘ for all things

love‘ so deeply ingrained

love‘ so all encompassing

love‘ that radiates out

I know this ‘love

I need this ‘love

I AM this ‘love‘!




As forgiveness allows love to return to my awareness, I will see a world of peace, safety and joy.  ~ A Course in Miracles

And my nominees for the challenge are:









Should you decide to take on the challenge…have fun!!  If not…no worries 🙂  Have an awesome Wednesday full of love….Blessitude!

  1. Dear Lorrie, reading this was like listening to a symphony and I loved how your words and thoughts came to the crescendo of “I am this Love”. That’s a very powerful statement and also a very touching one. I accept your Poetic Challenge, and thank you for the motivation and the inspiration. Your pal, Harlon

      1. Love had no beginning.
        Love can never falter.
        Love pours forth daily.
        Love makes silence crackle.
        Love knows your address.
        Love is the dude,
        meaning—obviously—Love abides.
        Love has no address.
        Love has no name.
        Love entered the building.
