(Love's) Better Poetry

replace the blank with a new word or phrase, 

make the new phrase the title of your poem, 

and then, write your poem.

This take on today’s poem-prompt 

was inspired by yesterday’s photo-session;

the aim being to get a few good ones

(aka everyone looking forward with eyes open!!) 

for a page in a family calendar for my parents for Christmas

You are the laugh-lines that I earn

And collect thankfully

As by the grace of God I learn

Love’s Better Poetry

You overflow my cup of joy

Filling love’s crooks and curves

With happiness, dear girl and boy

More than one heart deserves 

You are my gentlest lullaby

My tenderest of care

And each, the apple of my eye

And each, my humblest prayer

You are heaven-to-earth’s caress 

You are my home-sweet-home

You are more holy thankfulness

Than pen can ever poem
