waited long enough


you love her

we’ve seen you

two together

inseparable separates

two halves of a whole

why how act shy now?

be direct already

isn’t it time to put a ring on it?

can guess she thinks yes

go ahead

tie that gnarly knot!

love knot by Sara Verdier

Linking to quadrille prompt at dVerse where Mish has chosen the word “knot”….

    Great close lynn. Takes great courage to pop the question. So just do it or it will not happen

    I didn’t see gnarly coming, sends a whole different message, one that indicates a less smooth path?

    It seems people are waiting longer today, but it will always be a leap of faith. The gnarly knot is beautifully displayed in your image! ❤

    I love your gnarly knot! Great poem Lynn. It does make one wonder sometimes when we see two people in love and enjoying life, but never decide to get married!

    This is so sweet. And I really like your choice to call it a gnarly knot. Marriage isn’t always easy. 😊

    The “gnarly” knot added a bit of twist at the end. It struck me like a story, making me wonder what’s in store for them….

    “inseparable separates” such a simple truth but stated so beautifully!

    Like your bold advice and playful tone. It’s a gnarly one, indeed.

    Sounds like the situation with my older son and his girlfriend! Maybe one day…

    “Gnarly” – that’s an interesting choice of word.

    Tying the knots should be a decision for life… maybe they are not quite ready yet.
