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.
