It was love at first sight… – Leaf Fall

Carry on Tuesday #126: the opening line from Catch 22 by Joseph Heller “It was love at first sight”

***

It was love at first sight
Handsome god here resides…
Until the second view revealed reality
Where dream was washed away
By all the dirty cups and ash-trays
By filled-up garbage bag and

That amazing rain outside
With leaf fall whirling fire on
And sweeping all I shun into oblivion.
That was love at first sight!

    Nicely done and I like the first and last line!! “It was..” and “That was …” gave a lot of strength to the in between section!! Excellent!!

  2. Excellent write. No such thing as love at first sight. Ones heart tends to get broken.
